Bunting galore

I have a passion for bunting whether it be outside in the garden, in the house or on my cards. I just love them, so when it was my turn to choose a theme over at Cupcake Crafts it was difficult to choose the theme of bunting.
We are being sponsored by:
Simon Says Stamp - $20 Gift Certificate
Saturated Canary - 2 images of winners choice
For my card I made a pop up banner on an easel card like I did a few weeks ago on another card. I love that when you fold the card the metal wire is the same length as the card.  The gorgeous lace and bobble trim is from the Ribbon girl.
Hope you pop along and join us  and good luck x

I am entering this into Polka doodles challenge
