YSS Blog Hop Day 2!!! Win a Gift Certificate! *CLOSED*

Here is your 2nd chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Your Scrapbook Stash store!!!  If you didn't comment on my Day 1 post, scroll down and make sure to post a comment there, too, for another chance to win!  You will have a 3rd chance to win on Tuesday!

For my project today, I thought I'd share with you this cute little Valentine's Day banner that I made with a Maya Road chipboard banner, Maya Road flowers and pins, and papers from Bella Blvd.



All these items came in my January kit from the YSS store and I just LOVE them!



Yellow has been a favorite of mine lately, and I decided to mix it in with some pink and red for this banner.

Very simply, I covered each chipboard piece with paper, sanded and inked the edges  in a coordinating color.  I cut some small scallopped circles with a QK die and then embossed them with a Tim Holtz embossing plate.  The chipboard letters I painted black and adhered to each white circle, which was pop-dotted off the banner piece.



I added a flower to each end and stuck some heart pins in for LOVE!  :)  Threaded the whole thing with Baker's twine and finished!!!



TFL today, and now it's time for you to leave a comment and then continue on with the blog hop in this order:
