MIM #199

MAKE IT MONDAY CHALLENGE
CONFETTI GARLANDS

I am joining the very creative Miss Betsy Veldman today as she shows us how easy it is to create festive confetti banners for our cards  You can watch her video HERE.  
I always feel that I have to make 3-4 cards to be happy with these new-to-me techniques on MIM, but I was pretty pleased with the way my "first" came out.

This is a card going out to a Tween so I wanted it colorful and cheery.  I used some pink floss and a needle to string some heart shaped/regular buttons, sequins, chipboard buttons and a few paper flowers together for my garland...then attached 
to Stamper' Select White card stock with glittery brads.  The PTI Birthday Trio die cut from green card stands out against the white Number Embossed background.
