It's its time for this week's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE on SCS. Challenge #118 is...BANNERS. I made two cards.

This card is also for Paper Smooches June GD Search. I used this cute May Digi Freebie from Paper Smooches. I made my own cloud card shape with EP paper. My edges were a little jagged from cutting so I just used an emery board to file them smooth and give a little white edge to my dp as well. I decided to have my BEE pulling my banner using the sentiment that goes with this bee.

STAMPS: Paper Smooches Free May Digi
PAPER:Cottonball White (Clear Dollar Stamps), Echo Park Sweet Summer Time, My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine
ACCESSORIES:1/16" hole punch, small scallop edge scissors (Provo Craft), score tape, emery board
TECHNIQUES:Paper Piecing, Digital, Shape card

So I pulled out my Martha Stewart Happy Birthday punch and used it differently than I have before. I stamped only in the center of the top white panel instead of all the way across. Then I carefully colored the letters. I punched another white piece and placed it behind the yellow and put it off to the side as a shadow. The yellow just looks more orange in this photo than it does IRL.

I watched how to make this banner on Martha Stewart one day. I folder my paper in half and cut my triangle then place it over the floss and glued together.

My "son" sentiment if from the new release FOR OUR MEN from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS
