Got Scraps?

I've been on a mission to use up some of my stash that's been hanging around for awhile. This banner is one of those projects I started a couple of years back, and I take it out after the holidays each year, amazed that all the pieces are still together, and tell myself I'm going to finish it. Well today was the day this banner finally was completed enough to hang on my front door!
There are so many retired items on this baby, I can't even remember what they were all called! But lately I have been coming across cards with a scattering of pearls and jewels starting with a card on Sandi MacIver's blog recently and love, love the look of it. So I had to try it for myself:

  3. The banner is so adorable! I didn't even notice the hearts around the edge; my eyes went to the scattering of pearls/jewels you mentioned. (Which I LOVE). Thanks for sharing this cute, cute project with us.
    Now to peruse my stash to see if I can case your idea :)
