Here is my card for this week's challenge! It has to be one of my all time favorite cards! I love the green's and yellow's. All patterened paper is Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness... Such a great collection! I purchased a banner punch recently and I love how simple it is to create a cute banner! A little trick I use is... that I find it tough to put the string on the banner so, I just tuck it under each pennant... And adhere the each piece to the card... Try it out, maybe you have a better way, and please let me know! Banners are tough to adhere to pages, or atleast I think they are.
Materials Used:
Patterened Paper: Cosmo Cricket: Togetherness
Cardstock/dotted paper: Bazzill
Buttons: Unknown manufacturer
Ribbon: Maya Road
