Sketch, Color & Theme Challenge

My card layout uses Retro Sketch #13. 

Color Challenge over at CR84FN #55.

I love this Denami lilac stamp. Possibly every time I see a color challenge with purple and green --- I grab this or pansies.  Hope you aren't sick of seeing it!  If you "need" the stamp --- it's on sale for less than $10!  I hope everyone is having a fun and relaxing Memorial Day.  We stayed home this weekend, it's nice to get relax and get caught up on "stuff".

Product Spotlight: Happy Father's Day

Make sure you visit the DeNami Blog for all of the great Father's Day Cards.

Mother's Day cards are easy.... Father's Day a bit more challenging for me!  
I stamped the Sports Balls stamps onto white cardstock and colored in with copics. 
Happy Father's Day is stamped in Black onto Kraft cardstock. Layered with black and golden tangerine.
Perfect card for a sporty man!!  You could easily exchange the ball images for fish, plaid, golf, etc.

DeNami Pretty Pastels BLOG HOP

Welcome to the May DeNami Blog Hop: Pretty Pastels!
You should be arriving here from Nicki's Blog. If not, you can start at the beginning by visiting the DeNami Blog. 

Pastels are not normally what I gravitate too, so this was a bit of a challenge. Pink and lavender seemed to be an easy color combo... so I went with that!  I stamped the large hibiscus stamp in lavender and pink onto the white cardstock base.  The Rectangle scalloped frame and Happy Belated Birthday was stamped onto pink cardstock and layered onto a PTI diecut shape. I added extra fine glitter using a quickie glue pen.  I added 2 strips of retired DeNami ribbon onto the card front.   Thanks for hopping by.

DeNami Design & The Twinery Blog Hop

Welcome to the DeNami Design and The Twinery Blog Hop. 2 Fabulous Company's Teamed up to give you a fun blog hop and a $70 Prize Package!! All you need to do is leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win! Good luck!!

Hopefully you are arriving from Shannon's Blog... if not feel free to start at the beginning by visiting The Twinery Blog!

I love twine, I normally just simply use it to tie around cardstock. I know, boring!! I tried to come up with something semi-unique.  I stamped the large DeNami Daisy in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I added some ATG tape into the center of each flower and spun some Twine into the center. Quick, Simple, Adds a little fun and lots of color!  I added the Hello Friend sentiment to finish it off. 
I'm the last stop on the hop!!!
