Congrats Banners


It's Good Friday and it's a public holiday today!   A day of kite flying and eating hot cross buns and codfish cakes.  Yummers!  We're heading to the beach with some friends but before I go I wanted to share a card for the RetroSketches and Paper Smooches Sparks challenges.  The strings of banners in the photo made me think of the lines on the sketch so I thought these challenges would go together nicely.  Love when that happens!  Hope you all have a fabulous day!




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Simply Said, Flags from Hang Ups) Paper Smooches, (Line from Faux Ribbon) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Bubble Gum, Orange Soda, Butter Bar, Tide Pool) Hero Arts
Twine:  (Mandarin, Lemondrop, Caribbean) The Twinery

...and now I'm hungry! lol! I guess chocolate can't be my only food group today. Darn.
I LOVE this - curving the sentiment & adding the twine bows adds so much movement & fun!
