Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC23: Perfect Pennants

Good morning!  Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, in this case the fun holiday weekend, which means it's back to work.  It's the second Monday of the month, which means it's time for this months color challenge over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog.  We were given some great colors this month to play with and the designers have come up with some great cards.  I seem to have pennants on the brain, not only did I use the Perfect Pennants stamp set but I used several pennants in my layout (this definitely seems to be a favorite element on projects).

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then I added a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  Next I added a pennant with Bermuda Bay stripes from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack and used the Banner Triple Punch to punch the bottom.  Next I added a pennant using the 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon.

For the greeting I used the Perfect Pennants stamp set and used Stampin' Write Markers to ink the stamp and then stamped on Whisper White cardstock.  I use the same Banner Triple Punch to cut the tails on this layer as well.  I attached all the pennants to the cardfront with the Mini Stapler.  The final touch is a double bow I tied using the Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine and attached to the cardfront with a glue dot.

I know this is a classic layout but it works for so many things, I love it!  Make sure to check out the other design team cards for inspiration and then play along with the sketch and share your creation.
