I started by stamping and trimming the Birthday Blessings panel and mounting that onto a Decorative Labels 8 Spellbinders panel. I trimmed the SB panel just a bit on the sides - I wanted the accent to be at the top and bottom only. Then cut 4 different sized banners in various black/gray and white papers (all from the same MME paper stack). I used a Bone Folder and gave them a bit of curl on the ends for a little flare.

The next step was to cut, shape and mold the flower and the corner bow flourish. I did this using several styluses and a bone folder. I really wanted to add a pop of color here, but I also wanted to celebrate the challenge to the fullest by keeping it black and white - plus I wanted to see how it looked!!

This view shows the ribbon curl a bit more. What I love about this stamp is it looks so much like a chalkboard, and that's exactly what I wanted here. Here's one more photo showing the flower and flourish treatment. This one also shows the curve in the banners as well.
