Happy Christmas Banner for Wild Orchid Crafts and Blog Break

Hello everyone and happy Monday!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and I have a Christmas project to share with you, featuring flowers and accessories you can find in the Wild Orchid Crafts Shop.


I wanted to make a banner I could hang on my fireplace mantle for Christmas. I cut cardboard for the base and covered it with papers from Recollections that my dear, sweet friend Sherrie, of Sherrie Scraps With Passion sent to me :) Thank you again, Sherrie - I love them so much and couldn't wait to create with them :) I used Pretty Flori Snow White flowers, and Mulberry Poinsettia Blooms in two sizes. In the center of the blooms, I used White Stamens, Double Head Pearl Stamens and Small Double Head Pearl Stamens. I also used Pearl Spray, Mulberry Paper Leaves, Crown Pins, Frost Berry Spray, Guipure Lace, Seam Binding and Sissal.




I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
2) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Wild Orchid Crafts Products Used:

Sissal


I also wanted to let you know I'm taking a short blog break to spend time with my family for the holidays. I have a couple of scheduled posts, but I won't be back until the first of the year to visit you. I'll miss you!! I hope you all have a very happy holiday season and a spectacular new year!! Big hugs dear friends :)
