We Create Blog Hop--Banner Birdcage

Well, time got away from me this month so my post is a bit late, but better late than never, right?  I did have a bit of time to make a card with a few new items from the amazing catalog.  

This is the basic one.  I used Badges & Banners with a little splatter stamp from Swirly Bird.  I tied it up with a little bow made with linen thread. A simple banner in Mint Macaron adds a nice sentiment.

For the stepped up version, I ran some Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with the Brick Wall embossing folder and added some "swirlies" from Swirly Scribbles thinlits.  I kept the linen thread and the banner but I colored bits of the birdcage image with our great dual tip Stampin' Write markers. This is a very versatile set and with the two punches that it coordinates with, you have even more fun to create!

Time to move on to the rest of my friends! I just love all the projects they come up with!

So, my question to you is...what is your favorite item in the new catalog?  I'd love to hear!!
