CJ Too Design Team Post

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you all had a great 4th with your fam! Today's Craft Junkie Too design team post theme is anything! We were to make a project of our choice! I have decided to showcase a banner that I made this past week. The hubster's brother and finance had a little baby boy (and boy is he a cutie!!!)

Here is a banner that I made for his nursery:

I looked up his  nursery bedding collection online and tried to match it the best that I could. :)
I used Birthday Bash for the banner, Birthday Cakes for his name, and Create a Critter for the jungle animals. I cut all the pieces and laid them out.
The lion on little Luke's bedding has many layers on his mane. So I cut the mane in 4 different colors, cut pieces to match, and fringed the ends.
The monkeys on his bedding have stripes on their legs, arms, and tails. So I cut extra legs, arms, and tails onto off white paper and drew stripes onto all of them.
Here's a picture of the bedding and matching monkeys.
Here are each of the pieces of the banner:
I hope his mommy {loves} it! Thanks for stopping by today! Please hop on over to Craft Junkie Too by clicking HERE and see the other DT projects!
