Little banners and Chevron designs

Got some cards to share!!!
 First off, the retro sketch for this week.
 I feel in love with the cute little banners in the sketch. 
 I pulled out my #305 Kreaxions punch to make my little banners. I did one punch and then cut it in a strip. The patterned paper is from Glitz.
 And, here is the Cas-ual Fridays sketch.
 I went to my digital kits.  The chevron pattern is from a paper kit at 2 Peas in a Bucket.  When I printed this out, I printed it once on smooth white cardstock and then again on a textured white cardstock. 
 After I opened this yellow chevron piece in Microsoft Word, I added the button and the butterfly from another digital kit I have.  These three pieces were printed out at once. 
 I used some of my Target paper tape for this bottom accent.  I rubbed on the sentiment from EAD Designs/Paper Smooches.
 This card is just for fun.  That blue print is from Authentique.  The little tag and sentiment are from PaperTrey, Inc.  
Remember I said I printed that chevron pattern out on textured white cardstock? I cut my strips from that.  Love having the texture.  The little red flower is from Pebbles.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
