Easter Banner

I absolutely LOVE the bold colors of the Canvas Corp Easter papers.
That black just makes everything pop.
I started this banner by cutting the Green Chevron paper down to a 4x6 piece.
Then I notched the bottom to make the pendant shape.
Who doesn't LOVE Chevron?  It makes everything better.
I fussy cut the letters from a sheet of Canvas Corp paper, it also included the carrot graphics.
The black and white polka dot paper is die cut with a Shapeabilities die.
I wanted it to look like a doily folded over the top.
One of my favorite things about this banner is those tissue flowers.
Oh.My.Heck.  That is so fabulous to work with.
It comes in a pack too, so you get plenty to play with.
I cut out circles in various sizes, layered them, fastened them and then scrunched them up.
That gave some nice texture.
I added Glimmer Mist to the flowers and attached them to the banner.
I used pop dots to adhere the letters to the tissue flowers so it didn't look smooshed.
I strung it all up on black Jute and added those fabulous green mini clothespins.
Happy Easter!

This is also perfect for the Show Me Your Chevron theme at Paper Issues.
