The Paper Players Challenge #113 - CAS with Banners

Wow, it seems like I've been gone for ages!  I definitely felt a little "rusty" when I was making this week's card, lol.

Nance has an awesome challenge for you to try:-

Here's my take on the challenge, using some new goodies from SU:-

I've since replaced the Starfruit die-cut with one that has been embossed & switched the ink colour on two of the banners:-

What a banner-ific way to add the sentiment! Love all these happy banners and their little silver brads. Way to rock the banners!

Oh, Helen! This is so clever and creative! I love the pearl accents that set off each banner! Great card!

Welcome back Helen! Great way to use those banners with that sentiment set (can't wait to get that set!)

The original was nice but the improved edition is even better. Can't wait to get my new SU goodies (you need more patience when you stop being a demo). I am loving banners right now!

LeAnne said...

Very cool....this is a set I recently got and I need to use it MORE!

Lynne Armstrong said...

No rustiness about this card Helen...looks fabulous :) I liked the first version but I do agree the embossing really adds something to this design :)
Hugs xx
