Paper Sweeties' July Sketch Challenge

Hello Paper Sweeties fans! July 1st means that it is time for a new sketch a la Debbie and the Paper Sweeties team! I thought I would pull out my Vintage Summer Basics paper (seems appropriate enough for July) and pair it with some pennant themed stamps from the Paper Sweeties:

I stamped the pennants on the background paper and then on 3 different sheets of the Summer papers. I cut out each banner shape and adhered it to the base. It looked a little plain so I added some crystals and pearls. The edges are all roughed up and I hand sewed the border at the top. 

Stamps: Pennant Party, Some Bunny Loves You (Paper Sweeties Stamps)
Paper: Vintage Summer Basics (1921, 1922-bs, 1925, 1925-bs, 1933) Maja Design, Natural White (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Cocoa (CTMH), Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: twine, A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader (Spellbinders), needle & thread, paper distresser, butterfly charm
Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Pin It
