LTSCB Challenge 31 "Mind Your Banners"

It's time for another bi-weekly challenge over at the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog. This time the theme is "Mind your Banners". You must use a banner or pennants somewhere on your creation. Our sponsors this time around are:

Prize: 5 images to winner

QKR Stampede

Prize: 7 images of choice to winner
Bugaboo Digi Stamps


My card today features Sailor Ragdoll By QKR. My son is in the Navy and I thought this would be a perfect image to use.


I don't have any banner die cuts, so my banner is made using some ribbon that I've had for a few years and jute string. I made the sentiment on Word and cut it out with a Lifestyle Crafts Label It Kit die. I added a couple of patriotic clip art images that I found on the web. The butterfly is covered with 3-D Lacquer to make it more sturdy. The USA is just silver alphabet stickers. The ragdoll is colored with copics. I didn't decorate the inside. With the military, less seems to be more. They don't like glitter on things-too messy I guess. Who wants their military personnel covered in glitter on the battlefront-right? Plus, Eric doesn't like anything that looks frilly or fancy.

I am entering the following challenges:
