Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge

It's Saturday and that means another challenge with Just Us Girls! This week our lovely hostess is Dana and since it's wild card week our challenge is to make a pennant banner. You can find an awesome, very simple tutorial for this at splitcoast stampers HERE.

Here is what I came up with for my banner:

Trying to get a good picture of this was hard, I hope that you can see it ok. The gumball machines on the ends are images by Sew Many Cards. I used chipboard letters for the word "Love". I painted them in red and added SU Dazzling Diamonds while the paint was wet. The ribbon on top is a twill and I added some buttons for accents. My pattern paper is from last year or maybe the year before from Target. I'm not a fan of the little puffy hearts I put in the middle but I tried to remove one and it tore the paper a bit so I just left them as is. it's funny how things seem so different in pictures. In person I think this looks much better.

While I was working on my pennant my kids wanted to make their own so I have to share their versions as well, which I think are much better than my own! :-)

Tyler wanted to make one in the Mets colors:

Kaitlyn is totally into it and made a few, here are two that I took pictures of:
