SSC52 Birthday Morning Meadow

This card was inspired by the sketch over at Sunday Stamps Challenge. ssc52 I chose to work with some of the 2013-2015 In Colors, which by the way are beautiful.  So happy they will be around a couple of years.  I also decided to ink up one of the new Hostess sets for this year called Morning Meadow.

Banners seem to be all the rage this year and so the Hexagon punch arrived just in time so that the banner tails are so005 easy to make using it.  Just slide that banner strip into your hexagon line up the strip on the first edge and punch, perfect banner tails every time. Thumbs up  007Super simple design, quick to make but oh so pretty!
