Baby Shower Decore #2

Here is the baby shower banner I made!!! Super cute! I was so happy with how this turned out I cant even begin to tell you all lol.

Used the paper ribbon stuff to string it up. The base of the banner the flower shapes are cut first in chipboard (I used cereal boxes etc) at 4 inches from the Accent Essentials cart. I then cut the shape again on light pink and bright pink card stock. I cut the letters out using Pooh Font cart in shadow first using a tan paper (the same paper I used for the deer on the napkins) and then in light pink & bright pink at 3 3/4 inches. I adhered the pink letters to the tan shadows.

I used some flower stamps and dark pink ink to make my own background on the bright pink paper. I embossed the light pink flower shapes with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder. I then inked it with a light pink ink to help the dots stand out. I put the letters on (alternating colors so they were opposite their background) using pop dots to help them stand out!

I cut 2 deer from the Create A Critter cart at 6 inches using the same shades of pink and a black shadow. The owl is also using the same shades of pinks and black shadow.. he too is cut at 6 inches and from the Create A Critter cart. I strung up the banner putting the owl between the words and a deer on each side. I used my Big Bite 2 to put some eyelets on all of the pieces so that I could string them easier and faster and they wouldnt ruin the cuts. I have eyelets in the shadow of the deer and owl and strung the ribbon behind the front of the cut so you cant see the holes on them :). Hope you enjoy!!

I am entering this banner into the following challenges:
