I thought the bright and cheerful colors that LeAnne chose at The Paper Players challenge would make a great card for such an occasion.
Again, I wanted to use some of my new stuff. So, I thought the new Sale-A-Bration set Banner Blast would be a good choice. (I ended up using it inside the card.) I used the coordinating punch, too. After playing around, I came up with something totally off the wall. I punch some strips that I could weave some paper through. Very clean and simple, not usually my best work, but I think I like it. I had to resist the urge to do more, though!
The background paper is another pattern from the Fresh Prints stack in the new Occasions catalog.
The sentiment is a retired Sale-A-Bration set, Congrats. I didn't have any other retirement sentiments and I've always liked this one...it had lots of different "congrats" sentiments.
I had to show you inside...and my boo boo. I practiced the banner across the sentiment, then when I stamped it, I didn't follow my plan! I messed up the order. Not a huge deal, but I think it's easier to read the sample. The Pear Pizzazz is harder to read through.
On another note, I was fortunate enough to get some recognition for last weeks Paper Players card HERE. LeAnne chose my card:
I am super excited about this, and I will be adding it to my sidebar soon! It needs an overhaul...badly!
Thanks for stopping by today! I really do appreciate you stopping by!
