Banners and Flags...

**This is my second post for today....Scroll down for today's Verve Anniversary Post**

This weeks CAS-ual Fridays is all about banners and flags.  Definitely a fun challenge right?  There are banners from all over to pick from and I have one of my favorite dies here today...

This large banner die is from Clear and Simple.  The larger die I made into the actual card base and then the smaller die that goes with it, I turned into a sunburst.  Yeah, I am sorta hooked on sunbursts right now.  This one I happened to make with my Silhouette (yeah I made it!  My first attempt at making my own cut file! Yay!) and then ran it through with the banner die.  Fun huh?

I added a cloud, another fave, and a sentiment from a new Verve set, Doodled Occasions.  

Here is the challenge badge for this week...



Stop over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to check out the sponsor and prize info!  And then go make your own banner creation and link it up!  Can't wait to see what you make!

Have a great day!
