LOOK! It's my favourite stamp set again lol! And also one of my favourite retiring sets :( I found Banner Banter with its co-ordinating punch a real favourite when I needed a small sentiment and I'm sad to see it go.
TIP ALERT The banner punch is great for doing the ends of strips of paper also to make a banner. As long as the strip is thin enough - slide it into the punch from the top of the punch not in through the side.
My card also uses some of our new In-colours - Dapper Denim for the card stock - such a fab colour I love it! Its been used in the ink also along with Melon Mambo to really make it pop! The little butterfly was inked in the same colours but stamped off (inked once and stamped on scrap paper then inked again for the image) - to give it a softer colour.
The addition of some pearls along the butterfly's back adds an extra touch.
I'm entering this card into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week. Their challenge was a sketch as below and I thought this easel was perfect. You'll find their challenge here
