Christmas JOY banner

here is my first banner made with SU banner kit:

After watching several videos about color bleeding when using the mister, I sponged the ink on. I made the rosettes from Winter Frost DP - cutting a 12 inch strip and scoring it every 3/8". Then I topped them with die cut Festive Flurry snowflakes and rhinestones.
