birthday...Waltzingmouse style!!

This week's sketch was created by Karin Akesdotter (peppermint patty) and it included a banner... yeah!! I love these but, haven't made any myself until recently.... don't ask me why... I don't know!! Still on a MME Miss Caroline kick and used papers from Howdy Dowdy. Paired them up with WMS's Bitty Banners and Say it Loud!!


Banners were stamped in SU cherry cobbler, daffodil delight, and baja breeze- glued to jute twine. Distressed a couple layers, stamped the sentiment in SU early espresso and fussy cut. Popped some layers. Love the contrast of "barn siding" against the bright colors and patterns.

Karin's sketch...

Vickie, I JUST had this exact sheet of paper out today and couldn't quite work it as planned...I wish I thought of THIS! It's so awesome with the banner and the woodgrain and the teensy flowers in the corner. LOVE IT! Now I know what to make, too :)
