A Pennant Card

Earlier this month I made this card for the first Mini VSN challenge on Splitcoast:

I liked that I used the Berry Blossoms papers and my new Petite Pennants Builder punch. But I realized I had no current SU alphabet (I used a Lawn Fawn alphabet set for that card), so I couldn't use this as a Stamp Camp card. Unless ...

I went searching and discovered* the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers set on p 170, and included it with my expedited (ahem) Holiday mini pre-order. Now that I have it in hand, lookie:

Yee-hah! The Ladies can make their pennants say anything they want them to! I love that! I changed out the sentiment for one of the Curly Cute words, and I also did not use brads here between the pennants**. I'll give The Ladies the option to use them or not.

Okay, I still have more cards to think up for next weekend, but it's not Saturday midnight yet, so there's LOTS of time. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

* In one of David Sedaris' books, he said he would never date anyone who "discovered" a restaurant currently listed in the phone book.
**Since SU came out with these pennant punches and stamps, I've learned how to spell it (with two n's). I also think they secretly want to torture us with spelling based on some of the names for the In Colors and other new colors the past few years: Blue Bayou? Calypso Coral? Soft Suede? Pink Pirouette? I rest my case.
