I made a banner with my MiC goodies. I've also used some fabulous Make it Crafty Chipboard embellshiments from the Christmas Borders and Cog Snowflakes collections.

The whole banner.. 



I made the rosettes on each of the circles by cutting a 1.5" x 12" strip of patterned paper and scoring it at every 0.25inches - it was one of those ideas that seemed great at the start but by #5 I was questioning my sanity!! lol. 




The Merry & Bright title is made from white foam Thickers. 




Well that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed today's window & good luck!
