Have a Honking Good Day!

Happy Thursday!!! Both boys are back in school - spring break was simply too, too long! Anyway, since it's Thursday, I have a new Paper Lovin' Gals photo to challenge you with. What inspires you? Now for some reason, I had a real hard time with this one, I don't know why. I couldn't get past those banners (or are they called buntings, not sure). So that ended up being my inspiration.

And here's my card and my attempt at just one string of banners. I couldn't wait to use this recently released digi from Doodle Pantry called Clown Birdie. Hey, I know what you're gonna say, clowns are freaky. Take a look at this cutie of a clown birdie and I think you'll change your mind, at least for the moment!! I used the pre-colored image as well as the digital papers. Such a fun challenge, hope you can join us at Paper Lovin' Gals. Remember, it's whatever inspires YOU. I followed the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches, it's a beauty.

Delightful, fun card and your banner is wonderful! Buntings and banners are the same thing for the purposes of how we use them on our cards.
