H2H - Banner Day

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart! 

The theme this week is Banner Day. That can be interpreted in a couple of ways - a great day or you can chose to add some sort of banner(s) to your project. Then again, there may be something that we haven't considered that fits this challenge. 

I chose to use banners on my card - and I did that in two different ways. I used the obvious banners for my sentiment but I also used rounded banners to create the background for my card. They extend from the top of my card base to almost the bottom where they have been rounded to ft exactly beside each other. 
The floral grouping was stamped, coloured and fussy cut. I brushed the flowers with the gold and clear shimmer brushes. These papers are from the Boutique collection but they are probably the lesser used papers so I wanted to do something with what I think of as the secondary colour scheme within that paper pack. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret "Banner Day". 
You have until the end of September to link up with this or any of the other September challenges.
