{How Beautiful A Day Can Be}

FAug22-1-1




  Hello! I am here with a quick post to show you a card I created for the Flourishes 2-4-6-8 Birthday Celebration "It's a Banner of a Day" Challenge.  and this weeks Challenge at CAS-ual Fridays:  Banners and Flags




 




  I created my banners using my new Lifestyles Crafts die set "Tag Its". I used a floral image from the Flourishes set "Zinnia's" to add a subtle pattern to my banners. I stamped the entire floral image on the lower right, and stamped the sentiment on top of it. You have to look hard to see it but that is the look I was going for. Soft and understated.  I added machine stitching to finish off my card. I just love it and I hope you like it to!
