TV Ch# 27 "Mix It Up!"

Welcome to my blog and the next challenge from
CARDZTV!  This one is for all of you artists out there;
you are going to have so much fun.

Make a card, layout or craft project mixing 3 patterned papers
Starts: Fri, April 5
Ends: Thurs, Apr 18 @ Noon EST
Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps 

Here is my project for this challenge:

I've wanted to make a banner card forever and this inspiration
came to me one night when I couldn't sleep!

My card base is white with another white layer on top.  I embossed the top
half with the swiss dots embossing folder.  The three banners are my Mix It Up
portion of the challenge.  They all came from the same paper pad which came out last year.
  I used my favorite Martha Stewart Punch to add the blue
strip on top with a piece of white ribbon.  The flower is a die cut of
My Creative Time.  The sentiment on the front is from Cardztv

I finished off the inside by added another couple of layers.
The sentiment on the little tag is from a new set of Cardztv stamps
called, JUST A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT.  It's the perfect addition 
when you need a small sentiment!  I just love it!
I will write on the blue portion and I think this will finish
off this card beautifully!

Both of these stamp sets are must haves!  If you love making and sending cards,
