You may have noticed by my previous posts that I don't use a lot of dsp (I buy it all the time though lol).  So for me this too quite a bit of thought, and research, gotta love pinterest hey... I didn't case anything just browsed through for a while after dinner one night then left it a couple of days and sat down to play.  I hope you like what I came up with.
I used an A4 sheet of Whisper White Cardstock cut in half to start then chose some coordinating pieces of dsp out of the Spring Fling DSP pack. I love the dots the most lol I think they're cool as and very versatile.

To add A little something else to dress the card and give it a sentiment (sort of) I stamped a couple of images out of the Nuts About You stamp set (this is a hostess set, so if you would like to earn one please let me know and we will arrange a workshop to suit you). I punched the images out using the triangle out of the Petite Penants Builder Punch, I also punched two more out of a different coordinating sheet from the same dsp.  I stuck it onto Whisper White Bakers Twine and Tied a little knot in each end.  To 'hold' the pennant up I used a So Saffron Candy Dot at either end. I wanted them to sit up a bit so cut down a Stampin' Dimensional to adhere it with.
Like I said I struggle with DSP and took me ages to work out that I could actually put up with them together by adding a simple border to each piece using Whisper White Cardstock.  Made it less 'busy' to my eyes.

I made another card using the same layout for my Mum for Christmas.  I used punched butterflies and sadly a retired stamp for hers and spritzed the sentiment with some smooch spritz.
Well hopefully I have provided you a little inspiration.  If you would like to leave a comment I love hearing from you.
