Making a party banner!

Hello all... Hope this day is treating you well!  I have been crafting while it has been raining.  If you follow my blog you know that where I live we recently had a unseasonable drought... now we are getting caught up!  So check out this cute PARTY BANNER!!!!
I started with the idea after making this banner for my son and his fiance for their rehearsal dinner....
....which had their theme on it of "Two Hearts One Love" and the pic below is of that banner now hanging in their new home... :)  That made me very happy to see that they liked it...
Next I also want to show you the centerpiece I made on the table 2 pics up....
I was excited to try this technique after seeing a youtube video of it... I lost the website but learned the steps and made enough of the flowers to attach together into a huge flower!  I added tissue paper flowers all around the openings in it and added some flowers I made from my cricut from the Art Philosophy cart.  If I could only have 1 cart that would be it!!!

Now back to the PARTY banner!  I started with this idea for the banner but it was too flat and plain... it didn't make me feel like I wanted to party.  What do you think????
I am sure I could have left it like that and it would have been fine... but I just think the dimensional effect on this party banner ROCKS!
For this banner I used about 8 sheets of cardstock all together... plus a smidge of black and silver cardstock.. lots of my fave glue you will find in my blog tomorrow ...some glimmer mist for the flowers and my gypsy/cricut and embossing stuff for the letters to make them shiney... I stole that from someone elses blog... Loved the finished look and it is so festive I think on the banner...

What do you think?  Should I try to sell it on ETSY or is it quality enough?  I know it won't fall apart... it already did that in round 1 of trying to make this banner...

Can't wait to read what you think!  Thanks for joining me and have a blessed evening!
