Tangled and Spidy Banner

This post is picute heavy!!

So as I mention in my previous posts how I adore the twins that live next door to me so I had to offer my services when their Mom, Shana, made a comment on a banner for a previous party.  I wanted to share a photo of Sarah and Savannah on their birthday.  Aren't they just too cute?  BTW if you think that the bows and skirts the girls are wearing are cute you can check out more of Shana's creations on her facebook page Bows and More By Shana

I thought I would have trouble blending the Tangled and Spiderman colors to make a banner but I think it turned out wonderful.  These are not great picutures since I had to wait until Shana put them up to take them.  I didn't have anyone to help put them up here for picture taking. 

I used the same colors that I did on their cards since they matched each theme so well.  Most of the cardstock was from The Paper Studio and DCWV.  The letters were cut from DCWV silver glitter paper (love it!).

I used my Cricut to cut everything for the banner.  The triangles are from the Mother's Day 2010 cart, I hide the wholes and used my Crop-a-dile to make smaller ones because I wanted to attached the triangles together with brads.

The scalloped circle is actually a flower from the Paisley cart and the circles were cut from Plantin SchoolBook.  The letters were cut from A Child's Year.  I did lay it out in the Cricut Design Studio (previous to getting my Gypsy) but if you like mesurements I'd be happy to pass them along.  If you would like to help me figure out how to send a CDS file I'd be happy to do that as well.

I did have a brainstorm after cutting all the pices.  I put together the two triangles and then used my cuttlebug and embossed them.  I used a spiderweb fiskers plate on Savannah's part of the banner.  You can see a hint of it in this really bad picture.

I used cuttlebug Bloom Dots folder for Sarah's.  You can see the embossing better in this one.

I hope that everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!!
