HSS #107 - Banner Bash

I wasn't quite over the moon, so to speak, with my card for last week BUT this week, I'm in LOVE!! Must be the banners, they are EVERYWHERE, from SU! to Pinterest, Blogs, FB, ETSY, they're all the rage and I'm so excited we're jumping on that bandwagon this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

I just LOVE these crisp springy colors together...I kept my banner free floating and didn't adhere it down to my card, just tied it onto the sides. Which added a bit of movement and since the four little pennants fit perfectly on the front of my card, I didn't really need to stick them down anyway.

The birthday wishes font added to the whimsical feel, although retired, since it's an old Sale A Bration set, I figured it was only appropriate being that Sale A Bration is going on NOW!!

Remember, create ANY type of project showcasing BANNERS, link up your blogs and check out what flags the HSS Design Team is fluttering this week! Thanks for stopping by!
