Happy Fourth of July Banner

I have been gearing up for this kit class for a while. The banner came together quite easily. When I think of summer I think pinwheels and ice cream and water balloons. Not to mention watermelon. :)
I used a bunch of stamps from the Sweet Stamp Shop to make this really cute.

I cut the pennants out with my Silhouette.

This ice cream cone is from the SSS "Cool Scoop" set. I added some micro beads to the top of the cone for a sweet treat. (This also has a label stamp from SSS "Sweet Alpha Doodles" set)

These fun circles are from the SSS "Sweet Tooth" set. They were perfect for a border here.

I used the label stamps from the SSS "Sweet Alpha Doodles" set and added some stars. I actually used the mini journaling block from the same set to make my tiny American Flag.

More pinwheels and border dots.

I rolled up some patterned papers and made little fireworks by adding twine int the centers. Another label stamp and some alphas from the SSS "Sweet Alpha Doodles" set and the banner is complete!!!
Have a super WEEKEND!!!!
