8PM "A Banner Day Challenge"

This is the last of the 2*4*6*8 "Help Flourishes Celebrate Challenges". The 8PM challenge is to use a banner or pennant style embellishment on your card or creation!  

The 'banner' paper is from a Basic Grey pad, I used an craft knife to cut a few of the banners, so that they would lay on top of my SB cut shape. The Flourishes Carousel Horse image was colored with Copic marker, the white twine and rhinestones were from my stash.The metal brad in the top left corner was actually an scalene angled triangle...I cut the top off with a pair of tin snips to form an acute isosceles triangle, then outlined it with a Copic marker.  Before you think I'm a math wizard.....hahaha....I got the triangle info HERE.

This is the inspirational photo for the 8PM challenge.

This is the last challenge to celebrate Flourishes 5th birthday so......I'm back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

I think that's a BG pad I don't have (I knew they existed, but had no proof, lol!)
Love that triangular brad (and your adaptation to make it the PERFECT banner anchor!)
