Wishing You A Fabulous Day - CFC86

While my crafting mojo has been lost for some time now, it always seems to be the challenges at CAS-ual Fridays that give me some inspiration to create. This week their challenge {CFC86} is to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card that has a long and short side; no standard A2 cards allowed. While 4.25" x 5.5" are usually all I do, I decided to step-outside-of-the-box and play along.The finished size of my card for this week is 3.5" x 8", with just a wee bit hanging off the right edge.

Just the details… (1) I paper-pieced the stamped banner image, added a row of tiny gems below part of the sentiment to make it stand out a bit more and turned one of the banner flags 180 degrees, (2) After embossin the bottom portion of top layer, I adhered a row of flags along the back side on the left.
