Papercraft Star Challenge # 17

Papercraft Star Challenges oh how I've missed you!  If you haven't had a chance to check out the Papercraft Star blog now is a great time to take a look.  Not only is there a design team call out for new designers for this blog, but there are great challenges to keep us crafters on our toes!  This weeks challenge is a photo inspired challenge.  When I first saw this photo I was inspired to do a banner, becuase it just looks like a party!  This photo was a Martha Stewart photo, so of course I wanted to use some Martha Stewart paper I had in my stash.  I wanted to recreate the circle pattern I saw in the photo, so I simply punched out various circles and adhered them to a white strip of cardstock.  I love the way this banner came out and my son is counting down the days untill Halloween!  Thank you for taking the time to take a look.
