Hey There Banner Blast

Good Morning.  

I should have made a blue card today as I'm feeling a little blue.  My little furry friend is at the vets for her spaying op :(

At least she isn't aware what's happening. 

So onto my card.  Not blue but neutrals for Margaret who is in the card swap group I am part of.  She is rather partial to neutrals so hope she likes this one!  Have a look at her blog she makes beautiful projects.   Our instructions for the card swap is to use banners. 

I've followed the sketch over at CASe this sketch for my card.  You can see it below.

I stamped Banner Blast in Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Baked Brown Sugar and punched out with the corresponding punch.  The star was repeatedly stamped without reinking.  The sentiment is from Just Sayin' and I used a Stampin' Write Marker to just colour the words.  The banners were attached with Dimensionals and decorated with Candy Dots.

I wasn't sure how this would turn out by using the sketch and including banners but I'm pleased with the result. 

As I've used 3 of the same colour I am going to add this into less is more.  

This has been a pleasant distraction from clock watching until it's time to pick up Jess and see how she is.  

Hope all is ok with you.  Thanks for your visit. x
