Birthday bunting

Preparations are on for my daughters bday this weekend.
Have a look at the handmade bunting. This is a for a 4yr old who has only "favourite colors" so...I made it multi colored.

 Have used the sweetheart  die for the base and have cut out scalloped circles from old greeting cards and some from magazines too!  The alphabets are cut with spellbinders  donnas alphas in shimmering silver.

 My daughter loves roses and Butterflies, so did the rolled roses from magazine papers again and  misted it with Broken china and fired brick distress inks and and also distressed the edges.The butterflies have been cut,embossed and stencilled using the Itsy Bitsy die ,the edges have been distressed with walnut stain and some white bling too!

The whole appearance is sooooo girlie and my l'le one loves it...she was the one who chose the colors for the roses!
So what has been upcycled? The pink satin ribbon came with a huge teddy bear that was gifted to my daughter last yr! Some old greeting cards and magazine sheets have also been used.

Hope u all liked it...thank you sooo much for stopping by.
