Spring in the City !

This is sooo gonna be a banner year - at least in scrappy terms , it already is . 
Scrappy, blogging friends will know what I'm talking about - 
especially in terms of supplies & embellies that are banner themed galore
from CHA Winter ! 

last year I fought against that trend - this year I'm simply jumping right in . 
This is only the 2nd layout ever that I've tried with a banner of sorts .


Being that its Chinese New Year here
 I tried to create a red banner that is commonly hung over the doors/doorways of homes /buildings etc 
I took a piece of scrap night curtain material & simply misted it in TA's GM in Candy Apple Red.
The result was not as bright as the color actually is but I didn't mind 
since the rest of my red embellies more than made up for it . 


Used a Dear Lizzy chipboard shaped piece for the title. 
& my photo is framed in the Chinese character for Spring ! ;) 
This creation is inspired for the Banner Bonanza Contest over at AMM.
