Jessica's Banner

My niece, Jessica, and I have one BIG thing in common--we both love yellow! She likes blue with hers, but I forgive her for that. Her birthday is this month, and I wanted to make her something she could use every day. I haven't made a banner in a few years, and they're all the rage now--and my sister told me that's what I should make. There are lots of retired Designer Series Papers on this project, and some self-adhesive cork.I used the new Spiral Flower Die--love it!!!--to make the two-toned flowers and the Itty Bitty Banner Framelits to cut out the words. There is room for her to add pictures of her little family, too!  

I really had fun making this banner. My craft room was an absolute disaster afterward, because I had every yellow and blue paper, accessory, and ink out on  my table. Ha! Here are some close-ups:
