I have a card for you today using some of my Penny Black designs. First I cut a bunch of circles from the Madison Designer Paper Pad. You can use punches or the Spellbinders Classic Circle dies. I drew 3 lines in pencil on the cardstock and aligned my ornaments in the middle (not completely precise, but it'll do :) with a little glue on the back. I erased the line and stitched along the middle approximately to make them look like ornaments. I inked the edges of the olive panel with white ink.
I really enjoyed making the banner sentiment, which is from the Hanging Treasures stamp set. I gave it a little lift using foam tape, bent the end so they sort of tucked on the sides of the pane. I then cut the ribbon ends from a separate strip and glued on the back. The pearls are by Want2Scrap that I colored with Copic to match my panel.
Have a great weekend! We'll have a fun one as we celebrate the birthday of our first ever teenager in the Brackett Home! We will be with a bunch of her friends at a mall for some bowling and dinner. My poor husband will be the only male in the group again. I'm sure we will all have a great time. We will see :).
