Bday Scrap Banner

Sweet Sunday Sketch's just seem to always get my mojo going...that AND I was itchin' to try out my new banner punch!


I started off with a yummy cool palate of Basic Gray, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Very Vanilla and started searching for just the right scraps of paper for my pennant & paper pieced presents. Do You Stack Up is asking crafters to use their scraps this week on projects and I did just that pulling out my ever handy SU! demo paper sampler. My dry embossed piece of Pool Party was just shouting for a little attention, so out came a sponge and my Frost White Shimmer Paint (photographed in the afternoon sun to REALLY show off the glamour!). A bit of paper piecing and coordinating ink on the little presents to make them pop, some Grey Taffeta Ribbon and an ever so gentle Wisteria Wonder "Happy Birthday" sentiment to finish it off.

stamps - Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess set)
