Inkspirations Challenge #86 - Birthday Bunting

Welcome to my Inkspirations post for this week.  This week's colours are fabulous:-


& were super easy to put together:-


I have kept to a fairly simple design, with a touch of embossing & a string of bright bunting (or banner flags) for interest.  The tops of the flags were folded over to form a channel which the string runs through.  There is a knot between each flag & the string is simply attached to the top note die-cut with coloured brads.

We would love it if you could join us this week & play along in the challenge.  Please make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's fantastic creations!
