Cheerful Monday #6 - Easter Banner

For the second week of Vicki's challenge: anything but a card I created a banner for my forthcoming Easter Market ... well, rather two (lol) ... using Creative Cuts and More banner pages
the banner pages are covered with October Afternoon paper to make them very sturdy
scalloped circles (Quickutz, Octover Afternoon paper) edged with Stickles
layered with a paper rosette (October Afternoon)
and a chipboard letter which was painted with acrylic paint and stickled
embellishments: paper flowers and little pearls
I linked the individual pages with satin ribbon.
I created a second banner using similar ingredients ... I will show you in a next post, here is a little bit of a sneak peek :-)

Hope you can join us for this challenge, just hop over to the  Cheerful Stamp Pad for more inspiration, Petra.

Looks amazing - are you selling it or using it to decorate your stall? Either way, it's really lovely and that shows in the close up! Sorry I've not been by in a while - new job = no time :( xx
