Birthday Project #4 Banner

For today's birthday project I made a banner with the boy's names. I used my PTI Coasters again (loving these) and covered them with 4x4" square of paper, the corners cut with the Corner Chomper and I inked the edges. The next layer is a 4" scallop circle cut from the Mini Monograms cartridge adhered with pop-dots. The letters are cut from Nate's ABCs cartridge with the font 2 feature and font 2 shadow feature. The characters and checkered flags are cut from the Cars cartridge. I added some Glossy Accents, Stickles and Cuttlebugged whatever I could. I just used some twine to put it altogether.
This has been alot of fun to put this together for the boys. I figured I can deconstruct some of the decorations and use them in the scrapbook layouts!
I tried my best to photograph the banner, but for the life of me I can 't seem to do a good job. Any tips would be helpful.
The birthday party is Sunday and I'll post the last project then: Cupcake Wrappers!
