Party Banners

Hi and welcome to SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge.  This week we have such a fun photo and sketch to inspire you:

I mainly stuck with the photo but there's also a bit of sketch in there too :)

After sponging some distress inks onto some watercolor paper, I die-cut using the fun Party Banner Duo dies.  I then spritzed some Perfect Pearls mist which gives a lovely shimmer in real life.  Putting the banners aside, I stamped the sentiment from Celebrate All The Things and embossed it with Black Sparkle embossing powder.  The panel was die-cut with Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and foam mounted onto a white card base.

Thanks for visiting!
Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

Wonderful CAS card - the bright banners are perfect on the clean white - and the extra touch of sponged colors gives them such dimension.
