It's a Banner Day

Did I mention that it is hot here? Like over 100 degrees hot. Too hot to do anything but stay inside and wait til it cools off.  And listen to the electric meter as the air conditioning continually runs. 

Now on to today's cards. Banners are the latest design element du jour and I couldn't resist them anymore when My Favorite Things debuted a really cute three piece banner metal die to assist in making them.  I stamped the Pure Innocence Snow Day with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Papertrey Ink cardstock.  I added some stripes to the scarf with a Copic Multiliner pen and then colored the image with Copic markers. Touches of Flower Soft add a bit more "snow" to the scene. This card fits this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Challenge.  By the way, be sure to join in when you can.  I won a $15 gift certificate to the store last week with this card. 

While I had the MME paper out again I also made another simple card featuring the matching chipboard. I created the banner by stringing together buttons and two chipboard gloves with silk ribbon. I only have a small amount of this paper left and I plan on using it all up before I'm through with my Christmas cards.
