SSIC Banners

I wish I could tell you that I had made this card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge weeks ago but the truth is that I thought I had and suddenly realised yesterday I had NOTHING done - arggggggh! 

So I checked out this weeks challenge, hosted by our fearless leader Kris, who has chosen:

"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10 

Use FLAGS or BANNERS in your creation
(ie. create your own flags or banners… or in your paper, image)

I quickly grabbed things that were lying around in piles on my desk (as you do!) and created flags by folding thin strips of paper in half and dove tailing the ends of them.  Each flag is attached using double sided tape and embellished using buttons and mulberry flowers, finishing off with a row of pearls.

A strip of Spellbinders Classic Edges One Edgeabilities® and Classic Decorative Insert Three Edgeabilities®  have been added along the lower edge of the card and some gorgeous vintage lace added, a butterfly and pearls (of course!).  These Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

It all came together very quickly - PHEW! LOL!

This card is for the following challenges:
Fun with Shapes & More - must include die cut/punch
Stampin' For The Weekend - Show us Your Style
It's All About the VintageSummer & butterflies
Shelly's Images - Anything goes
Crafts and Me - anything goes
