I'd like to try to fix the color difference between the two pics, but I'm not sure the best way to go about that. May need to call my brother for some advice. But this was a quick attempt. Actually, this is a second attempt. Like this much better than the first.
This is just a low-resolution image, so if you're happy with it, let me know and I'll send as is, but otherwise I'll try to play with it a bit to get rid of the line down the middle.
And I haven't done anything with banners, so I don't know what I would need to know to make it into a banner for you, but I can try to find out if you want.
I just played around with borders a bit and did this. Like/not like? Don't worry about hurting my feelings if you don't like it. This is really my first time playing around with this kind of thing. I tried pulling some of the colors of the border out of their clothes.
