Let's Celebrate - Papercraft Star Challenge 43


Today begins a new challenge over at Papercraft Star! This week we are creating projects based on an inspirational photo. I was inspired by the striped wall paper and the banners from the photo. I knew that the Minerva striped paper from Melissa Frances would be perfect for my card!

I used some new turquoise lace trim and some lime green ribbon to wrap around my papers. Then I adhered some Jenni Bowlin pearls and a pretty velvet flower from Maya Road. 

You can easily create these little banner flags by either cutting out a small triangle and cut the edges with zigzag scissors, or do what I did! I used the Lacey Pennants die from Spellbinders to cut and emboss my flags. Then, I taped some toothpicks to the backsides and adhered to my card with foam tape. 

So are you ready to play along with us at Papercraft Star? I hope so! Here are the deets...
