Cricut Circle Montly Challenge

I completed my entry for the Monthly challenge on the circle blog. This challenge was all about Banners. I used the Inspriation banner sentiment BE MINE for my banner and used my Imagine for most of it. I printed the pink paper for the pennents from Lori's Garden and also the medalion was printed from Lori's garden. The letters were cut from the Country Life cart on my Imagine. I made rosettes using tissue paper that surprisingly was a perfect match to the colors from the Loris Garden cart. This was the biggest challenge as I had never made rosettes before and didnt know what I was doing at all. I think I could have done better with a little more practice but they did turn out better than I had expected! I lightly glittered around the rosettes and used my pearl viva pen to make little pearls on the letters. I cuttlebug'd the pennents and sanded then to distress them a little and that really made them pop. The pictures are not doing this any justice it is really pretty and soft in person but I cant take a picture to save my life.
