PPA4 - Anything BUT A Card

I created this Halloween Banner for the Pals Paper Arts Anything BUT A Card - PPA4 challenge. I almost didn't participate because I couldn't get a good picture of my project. I guess it was too big! (Click on the image to see it even more close up.) So, I laid it down and arranged all the letters close together. Although you can't see how nice it looks hung, you can still see the details. I used the SU Scallop Square die 115950 to cut out the background material. I then adhered it to orange canvas with fusible webbing. I strung it all together with black gingham ribbon 104832. The letters were cut out with my Cricut, using the Alphalicious cartridge. I embellished it with white rick rack, a few orange buttons, bling, ribbon and tulle. I am having a lot of fun making these banners! You will be seeing many more with all the upcoming holidays! Also, if you are in the area and are interested, I will be having a Banner Making Workshop soon! Contact me for details.

Here is an even closer look at one of the blocks:
