DeNami April Inspired By....Barb!


Barb made this gorgeous card. You can see the full post HERE.


So, I was challenged in many ways on this card, but I loved every second of it.  I normally don't "tilt" any of my paper, use vellum, tie twine around ribbon, etc. etc.  I love that this card helped me get out of my comfort zone.  It's still way more simple than Barb's original card, but I was inspired in many ways... which is the point.  I used 2 stamps from the whimsical garden set.  The 1st is easy to see, flower stamped onto the white tag.  The other is the dotted circle I stamped on the yellow paper.  You're the best was stamped & embossed in white onto the vellum.  I didn't like how the sentiment didn't show much, so I colored the back of the vellum with a pink copic.  Added some pretty pink posh sequins, twine, and ribbon.  So FUN!  I really wanted to add the doily, but it would have covered up the pretty patterned paper so I left it out.

  1. Wendy, this is gorgeous!!! I love that butterfly paper...I wouldn't have covered it with the doily either...it's too pretty! The copic-colored sentiment banner is perfect. I love the eclectic mix of pattern and it all works together so well. It's just gorgeous. Thank you for your kind words too, you're so sweet! Hugs!
