Banner for The World Launch on the New E2 on HSN

Hi everyone, I entered this banner in the Provocraft contest for the launch of the E2 on HSN next Monday.  If it is picked, it maybe shown during Jinger Adam's segment on HSN. I used the following carts:

Lori's Garden for the Imagine
CTMH Art Philosophy
French Manor
and a few more that I can't remember.

I printed some papers from the imagine for my background that I cut the banners from. I cut 2 6x8 banners using CTMHAP cart, one for the front and one for the back.  I then resized the cut to make it smaller and from fabric I got from SU(the blue floral fabric), I cut another banner on my Imagine.  I made 6 sets of these.  I used Heat and Bond ultra on the back of the fabric before I cut it.  I then ironed the fabric to the larger banner.  I took ribbon that I got from SU(I love, love, love this ribbon) and I took the back banner, ribbon, and front banner with the fabric attached and sewed it all together using silver metallic thread.  I also cut with the same fabric a scallop circle the one of the letters is attached to.  I used the same scallop circle cut for the rest of the circles behind the letters.  Some of the papers I printed with my imagine and some were from the Blossom stack from DCWV.

I used my Lori's garden cart and my imagine for most of the elements, except for the dress form.  I cut that from French Manor cart.  I glittered all of the elements and inked the edges of some of them.  I really like how this turned out, and I hope PC will too.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Beth!

I created a shabby chic banner as well, but I have to admit...I like yours better! I love the colors, prints, the glitz! You stated that you cut the cloth on the imagine? And is the background banner paper or cloth? I do predict that you will be one of the the lucky 5! Thank you for the inspiration!
