My First Banner!!! And 5 challenges, boo ya!

I finally did it! I made my first banner, and I have to say I LOVE it!!!  ( Oh no, I feel another addiction coming on! hehehe! )



First, for the banner itself I used the B is for Boy Lite Cartridge in two shades of green.  The Irish Characters come from the Simply Charmed Cartridge, and were bedazzled with some gold stickles ( every flag of the banner has one gold stickle on the bottom of it ).  The letters were made using the Tie The Knot Cartridge in a gold textured paper that I have had in my stash for quite sometime.  I also used some shamrock stickers on random letters throughout the banner.  The banner says " LUCK O' THE IRISH ", and being an Irish family I found this to be most appropriate to hang in our house!  To tie it all together ( both figuratively and literally ) I used a green shiny organza ribbon from the Ribbon Boutique.

Now for some yummy challenges that this project is going into:
Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #19 - use green ribbon on a project
Kleirrs Kreation - National Craft Month
Paper Variety Challenge - use the color green on 50% of your project
Crafting with Christina Challenge #18 - Make something using a St. Patty's Day Theme and the color green
Throw back Thursday Challenge - use an older cart and St. Patty's Day Theme

Please go check out these challenge sites for more inspiration!
Happy Crafting!
