Color Cue 7

Hey there!
Happy Friday! My school year has kicked off, and it's pretty good so far -- nice students who seem ready to go. Can't ask for more!  But that's not what you're here for, of course. How about a card? I decided to participate in a challenge that's new for me -- the WPlus9 Color Cue Challenge.  Their stamps are really cute, though I don't have any of them...yet!  Here are the colors:
And here's what I came up with:

Made use of some newer stamps -- Stampin' Up's Party this Way and Rough Type alphabet. I stamped the banner image in Aqua Mist once on PTI Vintage Cream and once on October Afternoon dp from the Thrift Shop collection (love that gingham!), then added the letters in riding hood red. I punched holes in the corners, then threaded my little banner onto some twine, popping up each flag along the way and tying the whole thing off on a couple of Making Memories glitter brads. The "you" on the side is from one of PTI's Fillable Frames sets -- 6, I think? A little twiney bow on the top of a Lemon Tart base, and this card is done!

I think I'll hang onto this card and surprise the husband with it one day. Hope you like it! I'm off to enjoy my weekend -- I hope you do, too!

I love this, Angela! I so want a banner stamp... still searching for the right one though. This one comes with too much other stuff I wouldn't use. ;)

How did I miss this card?!?! I love it! That banner is too freaking cute. And the little "you" on the side? And the gems? And the twine? Adorable!
