I Heart Banners, Bunting, & Garlands

Give me a banner, bunting, or garland and I will be a very happy camper.  I enjoy making them in all types and sizes.  This small parade of banner flags sweeps across the front of my card and the great thing is they are all from scraps that were hanging out on my stamp table.

The beautiful greeting panel comes from the Beau Chateau Side Notes pack.  I simply added Blushing Bride marker to each of the letters and Smooch Paint to the wings of the bug.  The chunky flower is so gorgeous.  I made it with the Triple Treat Flower, a Sale-a-bration free gift, and the Elementary Elegance DSP, also a Sale-a-bration free gift.  There are four layers to the flower and each is crinkled for a bit of dimension and lift.

Head over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see a whole bunch of banner themed projects as that is their challenge for this week.  I have added my scraps to a banner card there to join along with the theme challenge.
