I started by stamping a background of stripes using the Stampin Up gorgeous hardwood stamp in two different orientations. I adore this stamp and am always looking for opportunities to ink it up.
Next I die cut the hooray from some spotty paper and then used a circular die to give the shape I needed for the design I had in my head. This was a little flimsy, but I managed to cut down some foam pads to add it to the purple banner and stabilise it.
Stamps: SU, Hardwood
Ink: SU, crumb cake
Paper: SU, Moonlight stack
Die: Clearly Besotted, Circle Hooray; Spellbinder, standard circle small
