Vintage Banner

I tied it to the mirror posts after taking the mirror off to prevent glare.
I bought a book about adding the details to projects.  My style tends to get very simple when life gets busy.  I thought this would be a great way to remind me to add the details.   Here is the banner I just couldn't stop adding too!  lol

 I used the Pennant, Beautiful Butterflies, 2 Tags, and the Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies. I layered, sponged, and stamped, to get the banner to look like this.

I glued DSP to chipboard before cutting the alphabet and butterflies dies.

 The flower on the tag here is a 12' strip of ribbon, sponged and  gathered along one edge.  I tied the ends of the thread together. and tucked the raw edges to the back.  The center is a Vintage Brad, new to SU this year.  It is attached with a few dimensionals.  I added a bird punched out of DSP, it is made of 3 layers with the tail and wing ends curled.

The letters have had glitter added by using the glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds.  I just dug around and made a mess of my stamp space.  lol  It was fun to find something that would go with, like the Iridescent Ice brads on the butterfly wings.

Happy stamping!
