Make it Monday #119 "Flagged Banners"



I honestly can't remember the last time I played along with Make It Monday, but this week's card was so darn cute, I had to make one for myself.  Nothing is more cheery than banners flying in the breeze...well, maybe balloons are, but today, I made a banner card using a whole bunch of dies in all sizes.

My card is very much like the one in the MIM video done by Dawn McVey.  The patterned papers are MME, In Bloom and I added a Think Big Favorite sentiment.  The lower half of the card is stamped with a distressed stripe stamp from Impression Obsession.  It was fun to make a card without having to think too much about each and every element.

What a fun card. I love the papers you chose, and your placement of banners is spot on. I loved the layout, too, from this week. In fact, I think I am going to make another one. It is great to just make something without thinking too much.
