Its Been Awhile...

since I participate in a DeNami Design challenge.  So I took a look a what their current challenge was and when I saw it was a color challenge I decided to take the plunge because I just can't pass up a good color challenge, ya know???    The Paper Players have a lovely sketch for their weekly challenge and so I decided to pair that up with the DeNami challenge.  At first I was going to use my most favorite DeNami stamp a beautiful lilac image.  But after I stamped it on the cardstock I discovered that a good portion of the image would be covered up by other elements in the sketch and it just didn't look right.  So, I settled on another DeNami stamp, Large Flower Spray, for the card.


I stamped the image using Stampin Up!'s Night of Navy ink on Vintage Cream cardstock.  A strip of Stampin Up! Melon Mambo was cut and one edge punch with my very favorite punch, Upper Crust, which echos the shape of the flowers.  The sentiment and label image are also from Stampin Up!.  Once I had all the elements on the card base I cut a slit in the top, threaded my Dark Chocolate ribbon through and tied a bow.  A few gems in dark blue, hot pink and brown were added to the flowers.  The card is a little plain, but I'm happy with it all the same...

Thanks for taking a peek...
