I ♥ it when I have just the perfect paper for a project. This American Crafts paper has been in my stash since Summer CHA -- I knew I'd be able to use it eventually! The blue background is the reverse side of the banner pattern, and I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder. I colored the image with Copic markers. The #1 is actually part of the "You're #1" sentiment -- I just punched out the number with a 1/2" circle punch and adhered it to the yellow banner.
I finished the inside simply,with more paper and another sentiment from the set.
