The Bride to Be Banner

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone!
Happy Friday all! I hope you are all having awesome weather and enjoying the summer so far :) We had a wonderful time visiting yesterday with some family members who are home from California. A great time by all!!
Today I am popping in real quick to share a banner I made for the bridal shower this weekend :) I was asked to take care of some of the decorations so I thought it would be fun to make a banner for in front of the bridesmaids table. Hope she likes it! 
I started with Paper Accents chipboard pieces and covered them with Echo Park-Grey Flourish pattern paper. This is double sided paper... one side it is flourishes, the other side chevrons. The bride to be likes the chevron pattern so that's what I went with.
  I followed with a large rosette that is from a Silhouette cut file and cut on my Cameo. Super easy to cut out and put together. I then cut the grey layer at 3 1/2 from the Elegant Edges cartridge and followed with a 3" circle which was embossed with the SU chevron embossing folder.

The letters are all cut at 2 3/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge. The burlap and satin flowers are from Hobby Lobby. All the pieces are adhered down and then connected using a heavy jute cord.
I have a busy day tomorrow with the shower but I will try and pop in to share another project that was made for the bridal shower in the morning :)
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party-Many Layers
