Friday Pennants

Happy Friday.  I hope this post finds you well.  This has been a good week at work.  Good, because everything went well.  I did some baking for a luncheon earlier this week.  Those cupcakes were delicious!
Ok, so now onto crafting!  The wonderfully talented Kim @ Sketch Frenzy Friday has created a straight forward sketch for you to try.  
here is the sketch:

here is what I did:

This card was alot of fun to create.  I wanted to use a pattern paper that wasn't too busy.  So, I selected a small pattern from a Scrappin' kit.  I also used a scrap piece of textured pool party card stock, for the lower third of the card.  For the pennants, I used bits and pieces from various stamp sets, and repeated the same colors: more mustard, basic grey, and pool party, and added some goodies.  

For the horizontal belly band, I used the lace wheel inked in basic grey classic ink, and rolled onto whisper white cardstock.  To cover the seams, I added a strip of summer starfruit ribbon.  
For the sentiment tag, I stamped the decorative scalloped oval in more mustard classic ink.  I also stamped the sentiment in basic grey classic ink.  I used a square punch to create the banner end.  I stapled the two pieces together.  I thought the metal staple would add some charm.  To help build the sentiment cluster, I stamped a ticket onto whisper white cardstock, then sponged the ticket with pool party classic ink.
For the pennant pieces, I used various stamps and embellishments I had on hand.  To keep it all cohesive, I repeated images, and kept the same colors.  The pennant pieces are made with pool party card stock, with a layer of whisper white cardstock.  

Working from the left to the right:  I stamped the smallest doily in pool party classic ink and fussy cut.  I stamped a floral image in basic grey classic ink and fussy cut.  I made a multi-loop bow from pool party seam binding and used an in color designer brad to hold it together.  To continue the feminine look, I added a trio of pearls along the lower right edge.

For the middle pennant, I inked the music note wheel in basic grey classic ink.  I used the same small doily stamped in more mustard classic ink, randomly.  I sponged more mustard classic ink onto a fabric blossom.  I dotted the blossom with my 2 way glue pen and dunked in a tub of dazzling diamond glitter.  I punched a few leaves from a scrap piece certainly celery cardstock.  I added a scrap piece of floral lace and a few pearls.  I also added a trio of pearls in the upper left corner.
For the last pennant, I stamped the white card stock with the small doily stamp.  I stamped the same small doily in pool party classic ink, onto a piece of pool party card stock, and fussy cut the doily out.  I added a circle of white cardstock.  I added a grey pattern circle from the scrappin' kit.  The butterfly is from the scrappin' kit, as well.  I dusted the back of the butterfly sticker with baby powder, to neutralize the sticky.  I bent the wings and added some pearls for the body.  I also added a trio of pearls to the lower right corner.
I strung the pennants with pool party bakers twine.  I used two neutral brads to secure the pennants to the card front.   
Now it's your turn!  Let's see what you create for our sketch challenge @ SFF.
