Banners are everywhere! We love their versatility and the way they can be customized for any occasion. For this challenge, we want you to create a banner with any theme you would like. You may use THIS POST as inspiration, or feel free to create something completely new. Project must be newly created for this challenge.
This challenge is open to Cricut Circle Members only. Your entry must include 3 or more Cricut Cuts and meet the requirements above in order for your name to be entered into a random drawing for the PRIZE. You must submit a project to be entered into the drawing. Submit your entry using the InLinkz tool found at the bottom of this post and include your first and last name in the title.

Note: We want to be sure that everyone knows that you DO NOT need to have a blog to participate in the challenges here on the Cricut Circle blog. When the InLinkz tool at the bottom of the Challenge Post asks you for the URL of your blog, you can also type in the URL of a gallery you have uploaded your project to, a direct URL to the image (Photobucket, TinyPic, etc.) or even a message board entry where you have inserted your photo. If you receive an error while submitting your entry, look at the top of the screen and there will be three tabs to choose from. One of them will give you the option to upload your image directly from your computer. We are really enjoying your submissions! Keep them coming!
