IAR "I Do" YouTube Contest

Happy Monday! I wanted to share my project that I made for the I Am Roses YouTube "I Do" Contest going on now. You can check out the official rules over at the IAR Blog.

My cousin is getting married this month  and I created this cute banner titled "The Bride". She can hang this banner outside of her dressing room the day of the wedding. In hindsight I should've made one for the groom as well but hey it's her day, let her be special. =)

This month's challenge is a monochromatic color scheme. It was so much fun to not use color. I was able to use lace trims from my stash and I layered them at the tops of each pennant. Each pennant was cut from a 4x6 white mat board. I covered it with dictionary paper. 

The letters are Tim Holtz's alpha embossed grunge board that I painted white. To string up the banner I hot glued all the pennants to some jute rope layered on lace. I tied little lace bows in between each piece.

I incorporated the foam headed sprays and the small scrapbooking flowers (S10) on each banner piece. I made sure to at least have a pretty flower also. Another embellishment that I added were flat back pearls for an added touch.

So there is my bridal banner. I hope you like it. Make sure to head on over to the IAR Challenge Blog and play along to win some yummy I Am Roses flowers.

Thanks for stopping by! and Good Luck!
