Creative Knockouts #63 ~ Use A Banner

I had a lot of fun with this challenge at Creative Knockouts.  The theme of "Use A Banner" is a good one for me as I don't use them very often.  I don't know why, because I really like them!  So it was fun to come up with a design and incorporate the banner into it.

Our sponsor is the great Bugaboo, one of my all time favorites.  I used this pretty Autumn design titled "Jar - Autumn".  I colored the image with my Copic's, used tiny labels as my banner with leaves added to them and strung with dark brown cord.  Then I added the raffia and button bow.  The frame behind the image is cut with a die from dark brown burlap.

We would love to have you stop by and join us.  If you have never used a banner or not done one in a while, here is your chance to have some fun using one.  ALSO, be sure to visit the blogs of our great DT to be really inspired by some super creations!
