Sweet 16.../Drunken Stamper #118/SSSC#179

Good morning my peeps and welcome to another week with the Drunken Stampers! It's all about the movies this term and this week's challenge is challenge 118 - Sixteen Candles (birthday).

You can make a card based on the movie title, the sub-title (birthday) or go all wild like and do both! It's my off week but I still wanted to play along with Team Bahama Mamas. Here's what I came up with:

and the inside:

I based my card off of the current sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #179.

I loved this sketch for the big round element on it. It was perfect for using a negative die cut! Got out my handy dandy Slice machine and went to town! Hand cut the pennants, added some twine (love me some twine!) and some bling and called it a day!

If you haven't checked out the Drunken Stampers challenge blog, what are you waiting for?! You could be deemed "The Life of the Party"!! Don't forget to check out what Team Bahama Mamas have made and please visit their blogs and leave some love! Thanks for stopping by!
