Christmas Banner

This week's challenge at Sunny challenges was an easy one for me. Every year for the last few years I have made a new decoration for the home. Last year was a new wreath for the front door, the year before an advent calender and numerous decorations for the tree. This year I made a banner to go on the mantle above the fire.

I used the Stampin' Up! create a banner kit which comes with the background stencils, letter stencils, string and the canvas banner shapes. All it took from there was a lot of sponging and a bit of punching for the flowers.

Project Recipe
Ink: Cheery cobbler, old olive and gold encore
Accessories: create a banner kit and flower punches
