Name Banner for Emily

Tomorrow is a co-worker's birthday.  I've been itching to papercraft and thought I'd make a little something personalized for her.   For whatever reason, I'm enamored with banners.   This one is using cardstock, but I also want to make some fabric ones eventually and do some for the different seasons.  I think they'd look good hanging in my cube at work to dress it up a little. 

I hope she likes the bright colors on this one (she's not a pink and sparkly sort of girl).  I sure do.

Supplies:  Cardstock colors: Riding Hood Red, Midnight Muse, Daffodil, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Gumball Green.   Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, retired simple letters alphabet die,  Circles #2 Bigz Die, various other punches, brads, and buttons from my SU stash.

The Perfect Pennants die is so easy and fun.  In addition to the large pennants, there are layers and some fun doily type circles (like the green one under the y).

Hi Laura! Yeah! I love it! and hey?!?!? Paper Crafting is not wasting time! Our urge to be creative is a gift from the Lord! It's when we abuse it, that it becomes a waste! :)
