Flowers for a friend...

Good morning everyone! Today I have a bright and fun card for you. I made this up for the Card Patterns challenge. Here's their sketch...

Here's my version...
If you've been following me for any length of time, you know that I rarely use patterned papers. I just love making my own and DeNami Design stamps make it so easy! Normally I paper piece this cute little basket, but I decided to do things the hard way this time around. I stamped the basket on my panel and then stamped it again on thin copy machine paper and fussy cut it out. I used the surrounding area from cutting out the basket to mask my panel before stamping the pattern onto the basket. I then used the cut out basket to mask the stamped basket area before stamping the flowers and greenery.

And a little side view to show the layers and shadowing...
This card also works for the challenge we have going on right here on DeNami Addict. Our theme this month is "garden"...all the info can be found by clicking the link on the side bar. Remember, you don't have to use a DeNami product to enter!!


  1. I love the butterfly's holding up the banner! Great job with the sketch, your card turned out fabulous. I love the background stamping too!
