Celebrate


I love playing along with Trigger Tuesday since they nearly always inspire me. I really try to challenge myself to capture the spirit of the photo and not duplicate something exactly. While I LOVE pennants and this is really what makes the photo I wanted to challenge myself to try something else but similar. I kept the clean background and then used scraps of paper strips to create banners clipped with my square punch the length of the card. Then I added a yellow crystal to the end of each for that little something extra. I toyed with the idea of adding bakers twine somewhere in there, maybe draped across the top but in the end went with "Less is More". Thanks so much for looking!

What a great idea, you could make that with about any combination of patterns and it would always look cute.
