Altered Pennant

Hi everyone, it's Thursday! Here is my Stamper's Dream project of the week. It is an altered wood pennant that was given to me as a gift. I painted it with white acrylic paint. The papers that were used are from Melissa Frances 5th Avenue. If you haven't taken the plunge on this fab paper, do so =) The images were distressed with Antique Linen. I fussy cut the image of the ballerinas from the pattern paper and popped it up with foam dimensional pop dots. The Spellbinders nestablilities die that was used is Labels Thirteen. I pleated some white crepe paper (party streamers) and added this beautiful pearl/rosette trim.
I just love layering the Spellbinders dies to create a frame for added dimension. I added some semi-puffy white roses and some pink gardenias. The pennant is hung with white seam binding. I also added a Vintage Trinket tear drop from Prima to dangle at the tip. I've decided to give this hanging pennant to a sweet scrappy sister. I truly hope she likes it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by!
