Just Add Ink Challenge # 220

A very quick post today. So many things to do and only a few hours to squeeze it all in!!
This is the fantastic sketch at Just Add Ink this week. This doesn't happen often but I knew exactly what I wanted to do but wasn't sure if I could pull it off.....
Banners always look festive on a card but I seem to have trouble getting the flags to line up. This time I found a bowl with the right curve and drew with pencil around it. That way I was able to stamp my flags in the right(ish) place. I decided to put Wink of Stella on the pink flags and then cover them in Glossy Accents. And to finish off some silver string that I kept from Xmas.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts 'Year Round Sentiments', the flags from Altenew 'Sohcahtoa' and sequins by Studio Calico and purchased from Papervine.

Will also link this to the challenge at CAS on Sunday where their theme is 'Birthday'.

I will link it also to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp  Wednesday Challenge where the theme is 'Anything Goes'.

And one more link to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps where they also have an 'Anything Goes' theme. This is my second entry.

Right, off to tackle my mile-long list of chores. Hopefully I will have enough energy at the end of today to make something else!!!!

Take care
