Chalkboard Birthday Banner

I'm trying to build a stash of birthday cards but also try different techniques.  The chalkboard technique has become very popular and I've made a couple of cards using this technique.  This card combines the popular chalkboard technique with banners which are also very popular right now.  I didn't like that the banners didn't reach the edge so I extended them using a white gel pen.  In hindsight I'm not sure I should have done that since the lines are thicker and not exact.  But what is done is done and it doesn't look terrible.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Patterned Party
Paper:  Whisper White, Black
Ink:  Versa Mark, Craft White
Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, White Gel Pen, White Pencil, Ruler
