From My Heart Funky Flag Card

It’s a NEW month, and you know what that means… A NEW CHALLENGE!!! I laughed when I saw the inspiration photo that we have over at Stampin’ Celebrations for this month’s challenge because I have been gravitating towards these colors lately- TOTALLY NOT PLANNED! 
Having said that, I LOVE it! I am in love with these colors and I think they are perfect for this time of year, and thought I would mix it up a bit… here’s what I made

I decided to throw in an additional challenge with the Stampin’ Celebration inspiration challenge, so I went with a sketch from Mojo Monday-
I decided to emboss my flags and got a little unconventional with the shapes of them… I like the way it turned out.  I used the HONEYCOMB embossing folder for the flags and cut them into these shapes.  This is a great example of how to tweak the templates or sketches that you use… exercise that creative muscle. Of course I TOTALLY sprinkled glitter EVERYWHERE!  I couldn’t help it, OK that’s crap- I DO THAT ON PURPOSE and I am cool with that!

Then I created a sentiment using the From My Heart set in the Modern Label punch and lined the edges with a THICK layer of Dazzling Details.  OH- and I embossed the background layer as well- I LOVE that polka-dot folder SO MUCH!!!

I embellished my little flags with some colored pearls too- just placed them where ever… I also created a PAPER BOW- SOOOO easy to do and I am finishing up a video tutorial on it and will share that with you soon!
