inspired by - today is full of possiblities

hello peeps, aren't you luvin laurel's inspiration challenges? I know I do and she has more great ones to come every week. Sure hope you will join us for the fun! I was inpsired by the green and the fun banner, I have not created a banner in a long time. I dug around in my extra bin for some fun elements to use as a banner. A no stamping card, but did use a stencil to create the subtle background, adhered the banner, sticker sentiment, and a few gems. Be sure to check out the rest of this amazing teams blogs to see what they created!
