Oh, how CUTE! I love the way you made the banner with an ornate die cut--great idea! I had to laugh at your comment about cutting into the new paper. I feele the same way sometimes, but after all, it's there to serve us, right? You can't take it with you!

Oh, I love this, Tracey. ;-) The colors and the patterns, you did a fabulous job on this sketch. I had a hard time creating with it, because of the offset on the side. Love how you pulled it off! ;-)
