Banner Thank You

It's Wednesday, and that means that the super talented ladies over @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge have a clever sketch for us to work with.   If you have some crafting time, I encourage you to play along.
Here is the sketch:

I wanted to work with some new Stampin' Up! products, so here is a sneak peak at some new pattern paper, a new stamp set, and some new ribbon.  

The sketch is pretty user friendly.  Don't just see circles, but rather objects.  You could easily replace the circles for butterflies, flowers, hot air balloons.  The objects are virtually endless.  And since its not a color challenge, you have no limits.  Easy peasy.  Right?  Well, I loved how the circles were strung across the card, so I punched 1" circles out of this new beautiful pattern paper.  And strung them on some white bakers twine.  I didn't want a bow to take up some real estate on my card, so I grabbed the new machine stitched satin ribbon.  It's pretty, huh?  (but remember, you can create this look with your own sewing machine.)  I just LOVE the silver glitter paper, so I added a strip of scallop trim and a straight piece above and below the stitched ribbon.  The 'Thanks' is a new stamp, too.  I love how it looks all flow-y.  
Join us won't you?
Tomorrow, I will be posting a CAS card for another challenge, and announce a blog candy give-a-way.
