~Birthday Banner~

I am really liking banners lately. So, I attempted my first one for our big birthday month. Here it is:
I started this banner before my birthday in hopes of using it for mine, Mona Lisa's, and the Bear's. However, I finished it in time for the Bear's (which is today). Here's a close-up:
So, the Bear thought made it only for him because he thought it was masculine. I tried to make it neutral. So, comments please. Is it neutral enough to use for both male and female birthdays? If you click on the bottom one you should be able to see the colors better. Plus, I added sparkles. Doesn't that help?

I think it's totally neutral- and way cute! Can you make me one?? I'll pay you -and tell everyone I made it. It's not like you have enough to do...:)

I LOVE the flag banner. It's the new rage lately (see design mom's blog).

I personal do think it is neutral. Maybe it's the blue that made Bear think it was masculine. Or maybe he really just wants it just for himself every year.....So maybe you should make more. One for the rest of your family. One for each friend.

I like this Amy friend of yours who said I'll pay you to make me one -- you don't have enough to do :O

Happy Birthday Bear!

I'm going to agree with Shannon on maybe it was the blue that made him think it was masculine. I mean, cupcakes are manly and all, not to mention sparkles.

I love it! And I definitely think it's neutral enough! You are so talented. Way to go! And Happy Birthday, Cousin Bear! ;)
