Banner Blast - DSC#123 Thursday Challenge

Hi Stampers,
Thanks to all for your kind emails expressing concern over my extremely ill dog Cooper.  He was doing a little better for a few days, but has has another setback.  He is still not totally normal yet. We keep trying to change different foods and see if that will help  him at all. I am praying daily that something will work. I'll keep you posted.  The card today is for another DOstamper STARS Thursday Color My World Challenge. This week is the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge DSC#123.  I used the Simply Wonderful FREE Stamp Set from Sale-a-bration this year for the sentiment on the inside of the card. and I had a fun time making all the little banners on the front of the card with the Banner Blast Stamp Set and Banner Punch. 

For the card base and layer 2, I used the Blackberry Bliss CS. Layer 1 and 4, were done with Whisper White CS.   The little patterned banners were stamped with various stamps from the Banner Blast Stamp Set.  I wanted the images inside the banners to be perfectly centered so I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig tool to stamp the little flower and the heart inside of the two banners on the front of the card. (Best tool ever!)  NOTE: ( If you need instruction on how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig, you can watch my previous You Tube video on how to use it by CLICKING HERE, or access the video embedded below this post).

Both the matching envelope and it's liner were both made with the Envelope Punch Board.  For the envelope liner, I used a sheet of paper from the Moonlight DS Paper Stack. The final "tweak" factors were adding the large and small Rhinestone Gems to the heart and small flower images inside of the two banners and then sticking a little piece of Hello Honey Ribbon under the left side of the layer 3 I hope you enjoy the card.  Stay safe and God Bless!
