The Paper Players + DeNami Design

Hey everyone!  Here with a card for two challenges:  DeNami Design and the Paper Players.  This week the challenge over at the Paper Players is a CAS challenge requiring you to use a sketch provided by the amazingly talented Jaydee.  The great thing about her sketch is that despite being some what simple in design, there really are many directions you could take it.  For my card I decided to keep simple because I was combining it with the DeNami Design color challenge.  The colors are purple, light blue, kraft and chocolate.  A lovely combo provided by the very talented Andrea, but for some reason I was having a hard time coming up with something that worked.... until I saw the sketch.   Thank goodness for that sketch!



I used the DeNami stamp, Rosebud Trio, and a sentiment also from DeNami.   The image and sentiment was stamped on white cardstock using chocolate ink and purple buttons (from PTI) were adhered over the flowers and the edges inked with some purple ink.  The image was matted with some kraft cardstock.  I decided to add some texture to the light blue panel by putting in my Swiss Dot embossing folder and running it through my Big Shot.   The only change I made to the sketch was putting the sentiment immediately under the image.  So... there it is a very simple little card.  

Thanks for taking a peek.....  

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & spring rain; SU! Crumb Cake; Ink:  SU! Choc. Chip, Memento Grape Jelly; Stamps:  DeNami Design; Sizzix Swiss Dot ef; PTI Plum Pudding buttons

A simple card it may be Rosie but it certainly has impact, your textured BG is a wonderful contrast to the minimalistic image,and those buttons are fabulous.
