I don't know if you have noticed, but banners are huge this season.  Banners as home decor, banners printed onto patterned paper and small banners added to layouts.

With my anniversary coming next week, I thought it might be fun to make a banner to celebrate.

Products used from Flamingo Scraps, Prima:  Raspberry Tea patterned flowers and glitter cardstock stickers.  Flights of Fancy patterned flowers.  Maya Road:   Deborah chipboard, trinket pins (leaf and pink flowers), chandelier beads. Ranger Industries:  Diamond Stickles

Using a banner kit from Maya Road, I cut the back side of some Pink Paislee papers into the triangle shape.  I added some mint green cardstock to the back and then cut with my scalloped scissors, bits of a border sticker from Prima topped the base of my flag.

Then on to the embellishing.  Lovely Prima blooms and some fun page pebbles filled the flag.  I used the Deborah chipboard and some glass glitter for the sentiment.  

And finally, beautiful Maya Road stick pins and chandelier beads.  A bit of Diamond Stickles and  I was ready to piece it all together.  

I added a couple of my favorite photos of my dh and I together, mounted on the same mint green cardstock, strung it all together with some lace and voila.

I hope you like it.
