Pile It On! Challenge - Banners/Pennants

The theme for this week's Pile It On! Challenge is:


We are sponsored for this challenge by Bella Studio Designs, who have also provided the DT some some adorable images to use. The digi image I've used on my card is called 'Pickletoes Sunflower'. When I first saw the theme, the first thing that sprang to mind was I've used pennants across the bottom of my card to look like a string of bunting. The papers are all from the 'Lemonade' pad by BasicGrey, and I distressed all of the edges, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I used my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder to emboss the pink strip, sanding the raised area to reveal the white core, and the sentiment stamp is from Cuddly Buddly.

Here are the other challenges that I've 'Piled On!':
  • For Fun - Favourite Colouring Medium (watercolour pencils)

    Do check out the fabulous creations by my lovely Pile It On! teamies.

    a lovely card, thank you for your lovely comments. It has finally stopped raining here, but we all have bad colds and can't go out and enjoy it - typical or what!!!
