As soon as I saw this image I knew I wanted to make an 8" x 8" card and add some bunting. I made it a flag shape rather than triangles for a change and die cut letters using a Sizzix Tim Holtz alphabet. I find the trick with bunting is to give it a slight curve so it looks like it is hanging.
The papers are from a Kanban scrapbook set of papers I bought yesterday. The colours are so gorgeous I couldn't wait to use them and hope that using my fave purple will bring me luck. I wanted to add some pink touches too to match one of the papers. I used 2 different MS border punches and a Sizzix corner die for the swirls. Flowers are from Wild Orchid and Michaels.

I'm off to get something to eat now but will catch up with some blogging later. Have a great weekend. It's pouring with rain here but we can't complain as the gardens and the farms badly need it as we were declared a drought area last week.
