365 Cards - Day 177

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday with 365 Cards! Today's challenge is to be inspired by this album cover that I found:
Sometimes I'm pretty literal in my interpretations of inspiration pieces! Banners are so in right now and I have this super cool SU! pennant punch (thanks Mom!) that I've been wanting to use and this was perfect! Plus, I've really not ever used this stamp set from Papertrey Ink! Then it was just a matter of embossing and ripping some green cardstock for the ground...FUN! And as usual here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - anything goes
2. Card Makin’ Mamas - pink
3. CES challenges - bunting, banners, or flags
4. Challenge up your life - no patterned paper
5. Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
6. Freshly Brewed Challenge - emboss it
7. Hand Stamped Sentiments - banner
8. Karens Doodles Challenge Blog - punches and die cuts
9. OLLCB - no backing paper
10. PaperCrafting Journey - anything goes
11. The Friday Mashup - buttons, cupcakes, or both: I didn't "mash'em up" this week...

Thanks for stopping by again this week and can't wait to see how you're inspired by my choice of album cover!
