Christmas Banner

Happy Thursday, friends! I'm spoiling myself by spending time playing challenges- gotta' love it! My card today is for the CAS-ual Friday challenge to use Banners or Flags (CFC67) 

 and the CAS FTL#205 to use the sketch below.


My card's glitter glue, dazzling diamonds, stickles & glossy accents are still wet, but I went ahead & posted as I did not want to miss the noontime deadline for uploading over at CAS-ual Friday. I'll cleanup the lines & fill in any gaps once it's dry; I know it won't look quite so messy then. My paper is from a huge Christmas paper stack from DCWV. I've had it for several years & still love it! Card-stock is real red and crumb cake from Stampin' Up (SU!) except the white is Neenah Solar White. My image which I fussy cut is from Unity's March 2012 Kit of the Month called Head to Soul. The word 'merry' is from SU! Pennant Parade stamp set. Lastly, the little star was cut from Champagne Glimmer paper with SU! new star punch, both from SU! Holiday catalog. The star punch comes with a mini tree & mini ornament. I hope you like my holiday creation. Have a great day! Hugs, Marilyn
