Imaginisce's Sweet Treats February Challenge

Hi there and welcome to Imaginisce's February Challenge Blog Hop. This month we're asking you to create a project inspired by this image.

I just couldn't resist creating a banner to decorate my mantle for Valentine's Day. I used Imaginisce's Garden Party papers and Roly Rosies. Here, take a little look.

Love Banner

Thanks to my Cricut Expression and Birthday Bash Cartridge, the banner was pretty quick and easy to make. Each of the 6" bunting pieces was cut out of Imaginisce's Garden Party Wild Flowers paper with a white cardstock shadow. Then I added some heart shaped doilies that I found in the Target Dollar Spot. The 3" letters were cut from Imaginisce's Garden Party Rows of Posies paper with a yellow cardstock shaddow. Add in a cluster of Roly Rosies layered with Fabric Flowers and some Martha Stewart Punch butterflies and they're all done.

Ok, so now that you've left comments at each blog along the hop and go back at the Imaginisce blog HERE and leave a comment to be eligible for the brand new iBond cordless glue gun. Eeek!!! Good stuff. I used it to attach all the Roly Rosies to my project. LOVE that tool.
Also, to enter our challenge, link up your project at the Imaginisce blog by February 25th and you could be chosen to win a $75 prize package. More details at the blog.
Happy Hopping!
