...believe II

It's interesting how you realize things in life...like the fact that I never made a 'banner' on a card, or anywhere until 2010! What's up with that?

Well, Amy's Flashback Friday challenges sure make me search for some fun cards that I totally forgot I had created.  Her fabulous guest designer, Sylvia challenged us to find our first 'banner'!  I couldn't find one till I found this card on July 1, 2010...my word 'believe' counts as a banner, right?:
You can click on my original post of ...believe . I had used my Unity Stamp Co Donna Downey set "She Said" which has this wonderful quote on my card.

I used the emboss resist technique for the word believe and separated each letter from the quote onto little tags that I had. I then spongedtwo colors of ink onto the tags and added a little pearl to each. Added the tags to the ribbon for a hanging 'banner' efffect. I distressed some of the layer edges and added a piece of vellum under the banner, using Martha Stewart's Lace Doily punch.

Amy sure has a way of helping to go back in time with her Flashback Friday challenge!  This was fun (and they all have been)!  Go join in...you have until November 25th to get your banner entry in!
