I decided to continue my rebel streak.
Still no banners from me.
I promise I'll show some banners soon. :)

But this time, I went for a party hat. After all, it's always party time in my world! :)

I created the pom pom from some floss I had laying on my desk. I love poms -- they make me happy.

I tried out for cheerleading in junior high but I didn't make the team.
How bad do you think I was that I didn't make my junior high team? ;-)
But the math team wanted me...
And that shaped the rest of my career. Hah.

Ok, back to the card....

For the background, I used musical backgrounds, clear embossed.
A little sentiment and some gems finishes off the card.
What party is complete without some bling? ;-)

Next up is the lovely and talented Mona! She has some fabulous eye candy for you!

(Supply List will be added later. Please let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.)

You are doing great on showing how the banners can be used for other things though. That is what counts! Love this and the other day's little dress card. So cute!

Karen said...

How fun! Love the way you used the banner!!

judifarr said...

Thinking "outside the box" has definite benefits for those of us who aren't so gifted. It's great to have another use for the banner shape. What else do you have up your sleeve? Now that you've got us all thinking, we might just come up with some clever ideas of our own. See what you started. No really, thanks for the inspiration and cute card. How much good would cheerleading do for you in your life now? Now Math that's another story.

Belinda, your last 4 posts have been amazing - even if they do all say this is a November release when it is really a March 1 release. {WINK} And poms do make one happy - wonder why that is? Very cute.
