First, I used a SU Top Note Die cut for the background piece, which I embossed with a cuttlebug folder. Then I tried my hand with one of Tim Holtz's paint daubers - a super yummy color called Juniper that makes me happy. I want my entire dining room walls to be Juniper! I stamped the little flag pendants on various patterned paper and cut them out, adhering with pop dots.
The little flowers are handmade -- a tip I picked up while blog hopping one day (I'm sorry I can't find the tutorial!) but it is simply done by layering several tiny prima flowers together. I pinched together the petals and twisted the bottom, then snipped a tiny bit off the bottom and glued to another tiny prima flower. Repeating process until I was happy! It makes the banner look so darn cute!
The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse, Fancy Phrases, including the little flourish. Ruffled ribbon from the fabric store, with some bling added. And I'm getting A LOT OF USE out of my Diztresser tool -- buzz buzz buzzing around the edges and making me shabby happy! I hope you have a Cheerio! kind of day!
