Hi Everyone!

That's right- the title says Micro-Banner.
What is a micro-banner you may ask.....

It's a teeny tiny super cute banner!

Look real close under the shelf.
There's my micro-banner!!

OK-- here it is a little closer.

And closer...

And from a different angle-

And finally here's one where you can see the texture up close and personal!

For my banner, I used some Linnie Shapes from Linnie Blooms.
Check out the store HERE and grab some for your self!

I colored each canvas shape with my Copic Markers and then stamped some images and letters from Pink by Design.  I topped each shape off with some rhinestones from The Buckle Boutique.
It is all held together with some ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.

I hope you love my micro-banner as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by!
