Banners and Pearls

I made this card for the current challenge over at Twisted Tuesday. The challenge is to use Banners on your project. The TWIST: use pearls on your creation. 

I really love the look of the chalkboard cards that are very popular right now. So, that is the look I am going for with this card. 

Birthday cards remind me of fun activities so I used the new set from Stampin' Up! from their Sale-a-bration catalog. I think Ferris Wheels are fun! I remember sitting at the top and rocking the seat, teasing my sister, and making her protest. I was eight and she was nine. 

Birthdays also remind me of bright colors so that is what I used. 

Here I took a couple of pictures showing how I made my banners. I just used a square punch to make the tails. Easy!

We would love to have you join in our challenge over at  TWISTED TUESDAY CHALLENGES. They go for two weeks so you have a little more time to submit your project. Make a card, scrapbook page or 3D item. I can't wait to see what you come up with! 

I am also entering this card here:
Make It Monday #132-Anything Goes
