Halloween Banner






Oooooh I LOVE banners! This was fun to make, and I really like it!!

I used SU!s new BigShot Die cutting machine, and the Pennant die, Bird w/Leaves and Flower die, and all the little flowers and branches and doo-dads and extra pieces that were cut also!

Used Textured cardstock in White, Black, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, and Designer Series paper in Ghostly Greetings!

Also Black Chunky Essentials glitter, Red Rhinestone Brads (they look orangey!)

I just started layering and punching and glittering.

Oh I used some Halloween Rub-ons too!

The black bird I LOVE!! I glittered it with the Black Chunky glitter-That stuff is fabu-tastic!!

Basic Gray Taffeta and Black Gingham ribbons too.

Oh! The pumpkin is from a BigShot Die also! Neato!
And I used Tangerine Tango striped ribbon to make the Rosettes on the 2 smaller pennants!! With a black button and Black Chunky glitter in the centers!!
