Banners and Bows

Morning and I have two DT posts today-the 2nd one is for ATG/Banners and Bows challenge at 613 Avenue Create-now an easy challenge right???Well my inspiration must have been on a break because this was my third attempt -two card attempted-then looking through my stash I found an unassembled carton (because it was a milk carton which I cut wrong!!!)I made this up and using scraps of paper from stash I covered the sides and made the banners using a die from Your Next Stamp,a craft mag freebie bow die and ink bottle stamped in distress ink was also a craft mag freebie,buttons from stash.
