Red, White and Blue Blog Hop Day 2

HI Everyone, Today is day two of the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop and I created a banner to decorate my living room for the 4th! I just love the way it turned out. You should have arrived here from Linda's Blog. If you just came to visit me (I am very glad you are here!) but you might want to go to Nicolette's Blog and start the hop at the beginning so you don't miss a single fantastic project!
I used Make-The-Cut to create this banner, the stars are from SVGcuts.com's "Made in the USA" svg set,

the pendants are from MTC's basic shapes library and I resized them to suit me. The rosettes are strips of 12x12 paper cut into 2" strips and scored with the Martha Stewart Score Board every 1/2 inch (at every black mark, I think that is a 1/2") then two strips were glued together (a hint is that using a glue gun makes assembling the rosettes go much faster) the center scalloped piece on the rosettes was created with a Stampin Up scalloped circle punch
and the letters are the Storybook Font cut at 3 and 3/4 inches (I downloaded the Storybook font for free) I inked the edges of the pendants, rosette centers and the stars. I used a blue pen to do some doodling on the letters for some added definition.

I love my bright and festive 4th of July banner!! (I think I already said this! LOL) Don't forget to follow if you don't already and leave a comment to be in the running for the mini album kit!! Your next stop is Sandra's fabulous blog! have a fabulous Day!!
