Banner for Baby

Helloooo blogging world! Time to be Tuesday and I hope the week has gotten off to a good start for you!

I managed to find some moments to join CAS-ual Fridays for their 67th Challenge - Banners and Flags. This one was a bit tricky because I haven't gravitated towards a lot of banner cards. (Actually to be honest I tried a card that flopped hopelessly ... but anyway.)

Then the mail arrived (oh HAPPY day!) and in it was my coveted Grand Madison Window - and then the challenge wasn't quite so scary anymore ...  :0)

Pennant

I thought the long pennants contrasted more with the little dress and also played up the proportions of the window more than rounded or triangular ones.

Pennant Deet

The background is sponged with a cloud mask for some interest.

So there it is. Thank you so much for stopping in for a while!
