Banana Split Sunday



Today is Banana Split Sunday. This week we have a fun challenge for you. Reduse and reuse for your card creation. I chose the More Quotes Set to create my card. I love this set. It has some great quotes. I then chose a newspaper article from my local newspaper. I sponged and grunged around the edges. I then added my newspaper flower embellishment. To create this flower I used my SU circle scallop punch. I punched from the newspaper 8 scallops. I stapled them in the middle. Snipped into the center all the way around. Then scrunched it up with my hand into a ball. Carefully unfolded and viola.. a flower. I sponged a bit around the edges. The little bit of wire bling is a left over from a wedding I attended. These were on the table center pieces. Don't worry. I asked the bride first before I packed it in my suitcase..LOL.

Come join us for the fun....
