Party Banner- DCC Blog Hop

Hi everyone, are you recovered from the holiday? 
I painted all weekend getting ready for my DD2s baby shower that is in a couple of weeks.

I am all about making party decor right now and so today I have a 
super fun and cute banner to share with you.

 This banner came together really quickly, until I got to the ribbon tying part anyway!
I used my cameo to cut out the base shapes using Kraft CS, and the letters too.

After I had the base shape cut out, I glued the pieces onto vintage music sheets and cut out, 
this gave the banner a heavier bottom layer than just the sheet music alone would have.

I layered on the pink and white mats, using my pinking shears on the pink layer. 
I added the letters on top and drew a little squiggly line around the white piece with my Stickles.

I always outline alpha pieces when I add them to a project to give it more depth. 
I just use whatever black marker is handy.

So everyone knows that I have some issues with ribbon- I love ribbon and a banner is the 
perfect way to use a LOT OF RIBBON. I just cut up whatever strikes my fancy, put a bunch of pieces into a bundle and tie them up. Add a flower in the center and you are good!!

Of course, I had to add just a few flowers on the end pieces, just because I love paper flowers!


Thanks so much for stopping by today. 

Have a wonderful week!
May the Flamingos be with you.
