CAS-ual fridays embossed banner!

I know! I'm back already! Hard to believe after such a long absence! :D
I've got a fun banner to share- and it is CAS for sure!
 I can't tell you how hard it was to get a pic of these glittered letters! I cut them on my cricut & glittered them up with fine glitter- very girly, no?
 I cut the shapes with my spellbinder dies- using AC Dear Lizzy- (big yay for me for using loved supplies!)- I know you can't see it, but the paper even has clear embossing on some of the stripes!
I cut some flower shapes out of the same pink paper & embossed it with the sheet music plate (PTI)- tied on a button for the flower center.
Now I realize I could have thread the ribbon through the holes, but thought it was another fun detail to use burlap string to tie them to the ribbon! (and isn't it GORGEOUS ribbon?)

This was for my niece's birthday- they got their rooms redecorated & this matches what emma picked out! I'll share Syd's another time!! ;D
And don't forget to stop by the May Arts blog this week- it's another GREAT swap! Make sure you leave comments on the posts for a chance to win some goodies!!!
