A pretty little hello

Hi ya'll, I just wanted to pop in and see if you have seen todays post over on the DeNami Design blog?? Holy Cow Chickie...What an announcement!! Be sure to head over and see what all the fuss is about ;)

I have to give credit where credit is due...this is not my layout. I saw something similar, ummm, I want to say it was on the Operation Write Home Facebook page, did a quick doodle and stuffed it in my purse for later. It's been a while, so I can't really remember what it looked like...Basically it was a punched edged panel with a flower stamped on the right side and a contrast color showing from under the punch and they used a sheer ribbon / bow.

After looking over my coveted collection of DeNami delights, I knew just what I wanted to do.....

I'm loving this color combo...that spot of red from the lilly makes me smile. The sentiment and swirl are stamped directly on the card and the water lilly is popped up with foam tape. Normally I would adhere a strip of ribbon then make the bow separate and attach it. For this card I decided to make it all one piece...didn't turn out to bad if I say so myself. I'm really feeling this little card and I even got the "stamp" of approval from hubby. He is very critical of my work with his 1 to 10 scale and this rated an 11 in his book...that RARELY ever happens ;)

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!
