My starting point was to cut flag banners from 3 different SU! patterned papers and I stamped the sentiment and inked the edges of each banner. I then made an A6 sized Pistachio Pudding card base. I stamped my new fave stamp - the SU! Hardwood stamp - onto Pool Party CS using the same colour ink. I inked the edges of the panel and matted onto a black layer. I adhered a panel of black CS and popped up the 3 banners. I then added a die cut leafy branch and 3 punched flowers with black gem centres.
