Birthday Banner

This banner has many shades of Purple and Lavender as requested by a Birthday Girl. The original one is over 8 feet long!!!! Lucky Girl! I couldn't get a sharp photo of the banner because it is so long......and I have made a 2nd one that photographs muych better (because it is way shorter!). This shorter banner has accents of yellow ribbon (as requested).

Both the large and small lavender banner is stamped with the swirls from Baroque Motifs using Lavender Lace Ink. There is a layer of white netting over the Light Lavender (doesn't show up in the photo). On top of the netting is a Dot background stamped scallop circle (Big Shot die) using Close to Cocoa ink. The scallop circle is attached on top of the netting using dimensionals.

The Horizontal Slot Punch was used to string the ribbons and "pearl" strands.

Lots of pre-punched butterflies were ready, along with two shades of purple ribbon: satin and pico edge and pearls by the yard. Below are close-up view of some of the letters.

The tips of the letter banners is the scallop circle (part of the banner die) along with a punched butterfly. There is a dangling clear bead (from the Pretties kit) at the end. 1/4" satin ribbon knotted and bead is threaded through to the tip of the banner.

The silk flowers are from Petaloo (they are called Flora Doodles) and were available in various shades of purple: perfect! "Diamonds" in the flower centers are attached with glue dots are used for the Bling effect.
