Becky's Sweet Creations Weekly Challenge- Banner

Well I did it...I made my first BANNER!! :) Our challenge this week was to make a banner and lo & behold I got a request to make one from a customer!! Ironic huh?? I was a little intimidated at first, mainly because I have seen some really good ones out there in bloggerland! But my request was to make something to fit a 10 ft wall...well what else could I do but a banner?? Let me start off the details by saying that I'm sorry for the icky pics...I don't have a bare wall that this fit across so I just hung it from my cabinet in my craftroom...excuse all the crafty clutter behind it!!
I was given a bed sheet that would be in the room to go by for the colors, so I knew pink/bright pink/lime green and yellow would be in there...I looked through my papers and found the patterned paper first, then got to work!! I cut the scalloped banner at the biggest size I could get it on my Gypsy on a 12x12 paper...(I used "Birthday Bash") then used "Alphalicious" to make the letters. Now for the decorating!! I seriously love making rosettes and thought it would make a great addition to the banner! I added a flower on top and some really cool glass bead-things from Hobby Lobby!
Since I was using the rosettes, I didn't NEED ribbon so I used brads to connect the pieces, then hot glued the rosettes on top. I did add some ribbon to the ends to hang the banner....

I was really happy with my first banner and so was she!! I know I will be doing more of these soon, It was easier than I thought and alot of fun too! :) :)

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥
