A Gift For Amy

This week at City Crafters the challenge is to make a gift.....
I made this gorgeous owl banner for my niece Amy that has a baby due in August...
and bet you can guess the baby's name and gender...."Lexie"
The pink and sunshine yellow colors are the wall colors of the room....
She has a love of owls...so this banner was perfect for her...
I cut the entire thing on my Cricut using the shadow feature for the owl,
 it took me about 2 days to complete it....
but there was alot of cutting, layering and tying of ribbons.....
It's pretty big, as the largest scallop square was cut at 7 1/2"....
whoops...I did cut the owls belly from a Spellbinders die....
and look at those feet on the owls...bling!!

I am big into making banners, as my daughter uses them in her photography business...
