Inkspiration 37- Pennant Party

Hi everyone,

well I'm back for the Inkspiration challenge this week, after having last week off to visit my new little niece - its so easy to forget how tiny they are when their born - especially when you have two kids, now 2.5 and 5.5 years running around! So this week its not going to be a baby card ;) This week Keesh has picked out a nice combo of colours (see below) so instead I opted for boys birthday card (of the grown up type) since quite a few of the men in my family have birthdays coming up.

And here is what I came up with. I finally succumbed to the banner/pennant trend and I must admit it does give a fun look :)

I started with a Whisper White base, layered that with a Chocolate Chip and then added a top Whisper White layer embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Across the top left corner I added a little string of three flags strung together with linen thread and mounted on dimensionals. For the central panel I started with a Choc Chip base cut with a scalloped rectangle nestability. I layered that with Whisper White. In the bottom left corner I stamped B is for birthday. Different bits inked up in the different colours and the central star is up on a dimensional. I finished off the top panel with a string of 5 flags in alternating colours, across the top right corner, again strung together with linen thread. This top panel was mounted over a strip of the (now retired) 1" Choc Chip grosgrain. I finished the inside off with another string of flags.

Thanks for visiting,
