Think Spring! A&T Design Challenge...Originally Emerald Faeries Garden! Banner Challenge!

Ok so I'm back...scroll down for my other post for today! :)

So as I mentioned earlier...there have been lots of changes over at the Emerald Faeries Challenges blog! Now called A&T Digital Designs...they have lots of new images in store for you to play with and now they are back with a new challengeor everyone to play along with!

The theme this fortnights challenge is "Banners"! 
Anita has created some awesome banners you must check out! I have featured another newly released image today along with the new banners!

I printed out the image 3 times and cute out the flowers and sorta decoupaged them...Side view of the dimensional detail...

The image I used for my card today is part of the new release and this one is called "Apple Blossoms"! I sponged around the image using my nesties dies and Tim Holtz Distress ink...I also sponged the edges.

I did the same with the banner...I printed it out 3 times, cut it out and decoupaged it to give it real dimension. The sentiment is just another cheapy from the bargain bin and I heat embossed it!
