didn't realize my picture was so dark. bummer! anyway - i used lots of red paper and a martha stewart border punch, then tons of crepe paper. i made flowers out of it and used it around the top layer of the cake. martha stewart pearls (which were 75 cents for a pack at walmart in the clearance) and some swirly flourishes that i cut with my slice. Oh and that yummy gingham from the Scripts Kit.
here's the banner:
i need to find a great place to hang banners to photograph them. i actually love the way this turned out. so much so that i'm thinking about making a bunch of them to put on Etsy and take custom orders for them!! anyone need one for their kid's room that i can make you and then photograph as a sample, then you can have it?? :)
