"banner day" birthday card

it's hard to believe that i'm already showing my last project from june's pixie dust paperie kit, SUMMER OF LOVE... where exactly did this month *GO*?

this might be my favorite card of the whole month, though, actually; it was definitely the most fun to make:

i stenciled and misted and sewed the fun star background... (which, being tone-on-tone-on-tone, doesn't show up as well as i'd like in the photo, but is quite cool irl) ...then i paper-pieced and hand-embroidered the cupcake... and then i WENT NUTS with the fabulous sassafras flag banner stickers in the kit! well, you get an entire 12x12 sheet of 'em, so i could afford to go crazy; i used a few on maddie's gift bag, as well, and i still have two-thirds of the sheet leftover!

more details on the pixie blog, where it's well worth scrolling through the rest of this month's GORGEOUS pixie goodness!!! :)
