Banner card

I've not really got into banners... so when this weeks challenge came up over at Simply Scraping Crafts I really did have to challenge myself to come up with a card.... Luckily our lovely sponsor.........The Craft's Meow had given us some lovely stamps to work with.... one of mine was a Beach set.... I thought this lent itself well to the idea of a banner
SSC Challenge ~  Banners

I use the sand stamp, the beach ball and bucket from the set as well as the sentiment.  I cut the banners from card and used Hero Arts stamps ~ Antique Brocade and Envelope Pattern~ to give them dimension.   Lots of distressing, some glossy accents and a fun summertime card. So this card can just sneak in for Hero Arts monthly challenge as well.

Do go visit the Challenge over at the SSC blog... and see the lovely samples by the rest of the DT... very creative.  And don't forget you can enter for the whole of July.... embossing last week, using banners this week and look out for next week's sketch...  would love to see your creations

Hi Dawn
I liked this card in real life and I like it here too, I know you found this a Challenge, but I think it has turned out really well.
PS: (thanks for the tip re the dying)
