I made a banner to use for Halloween...I love banners and who wouldn't want to have this fun one hanging to celebrate.
I started by printing and cutting out my banner pieces from Retro Cafe-this is two different pieces I purchased on-line.I cut double pieces so I could make a two sided project.I LOVE using my favorite Wescott scissors- the handle is so comfortable, makes my cutting so comfortable.
 I enjoy cutting many dies all at once in my new machine ~ I ordered at CHA and received soon after. I haven't spent much time playing since I have been working,
When I cut the corner flourish I decided to cut extra ones with a different pattern...I cut out the pumpkin section and matted on the other pieces.
 I wanted to share a closer look of the pieces, I used the spider web corner pieces to accent almost each piece I took the two similar pieces and sandwiched them between black card stock.
 You can also see the three bat sizes I placed on the banner.
I used Stickles to accent a few area. I used a couple of my favorite Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbons to attach and accent with-These are available this month in the September ribbon of the month .
If you would like more details just let me know.
Hope you like my project this week for our challenge.
