I wanted to play along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge for this week.  The challenge this time was to use an inspiration photo. 
 You can see that photo below, it just looks like a party waiting to happen!  It is actually a whole lot of banners but I wanted to get that look with something a little different then a traditional banner.  I went to the straw in the Crystal Clear set from Paper Smooches and used those for my version of "banners".  I so love the set that this sentiment comes in, all of them are large so this one became my focal point. 
 Then for my little "banner" accents I used this adorable tiny flower.  I stamped it several times in more then one color and then used the matching die set to cut them out.  Enamel dots finished off my cute little flowers. 
 Here is the inspiration photo.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
