Banners and flags

It seems banners & flags are still very popular and although I haven't used it too often I'm growing fond of it too for interesting elements, texture (not all glued down) and a great way to use up scraps. I don't usually try and consciously combine challenges, but these worked out perfectly:
I made this for:

and
http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2013/06/cfc104.html (Banners & Flags!)
and

and

which combined ended up like this:



 There's a lot of different sources of paper in here: GinaK (Petals & Wings), We R Memory Keepers and some odds & ends I don't remember. Banners cut by hand.
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #12
