Friday Flashback: Banner Blast

Happy Friday, stampy pals!  Today's Friday Flashback stamp set is Banner Blast, which was one of last year's Sale-a-Bration offerings.  So let's get to it!

Also features Baby Prints and My Paper Pumpkin (tiny chevron)
Sweet baby feets!

Also features Bring on the Cake

Or how about a bright birthday banner?

Also features Petal Parade, Best of Sale-a-Bration

Or just a funky floral "hi".  This was one of those odder Splitcoast layouts...and that's it from the archives.  So let's see something new!


I tried to resist the butterflies, really I did, but I just couldn't.  (I almost used them yesterday too but went with Be the Star instead.)  I used the latest sketch from Create with Connie and Mary:


I adapted it to a landscape card instead of portrait and I cannot seem to type today so hopefully I caught all the typos before this goes up on the blog.  Anyway, I used all the same parts and pieces, but the butterfly was too wide to accommodate a portrait card.

I also used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown:


Hmm, maybe that inspiration pic is why I couldn't resist the butterflies today.  There's a thought.  Anyway, I interpreted these colors as Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, and Garden Green.

Hope you have a great weekend, peeps!  Mwah!

Great bunch of cards that you made. I love how you flipped the sketch for the butterfly card and speaking of butterflies - the one you created is so pretty and really pops against the black background. Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

Your cards are all so great! The butterfly stands out so beautifully on the Connie and Mary sketch card, and I love how the little message pops against the dark banners, too! Thank you for joining us!
