My first card was inpsired by Jo Ann Hewins (in my Luv 2 Stamp Group) and features the SUPER POPULAR MODERN MEDLEY DESIGNER PAPER!!

The flags are easy to cut.. I used a 3/4"x4" strip of paper, folded it over the Bakers Twine then snipped the ends with the Hexagon Punch. (see THIS POST for hot tip)

Designer Paper used:  Neutrals DSP stack, pg 152 & Modern Medley, pg 154

Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black Cardstock, Hexagon Punch and Early Espresso Bakers Twine also used
