I thought I would start out using the banners/pennants that are so popular lately.
This is was a fun and easy card to make for a man's birthday. I don't have a specific recipient in mind but I need a bunch of masculine birthday cards in the near future.
I paper pieced/layered the banners using some scrap DP. This paper from October Afternoon is too cute to toss any scraps so I keep them all just in case I can use them for something fun like this. The clouds are sponged on the blue using white ink. The bottom layer is distressed to add a little texture.
Here is a look at the complete set of 19 images. (They're just $6!)
Please stop by the rest of the DT to see what they created this week and Lindsay will have her weekly freebie posted on her blog.
