Thinking of You...DeNami Designs Debut


Hi there! It's my first post as a Guest Designer at DeNami Designs! The Sketch Challenge starts today and I am so happy to be able to join in on the fun!

I had a bit of a struggle getting an idea with this sketch at first because I knew which stamp I wanted to use, I just had to figure out how to make it work...that's why it's called a "challenge," I guess!

First, I stamped this very sweet Leafy Vine Wreath image, coloring the leaves with Copics and adding some pretty pink pearls to it. I stamped my sentiment from the Thoughtful Greeting Petit Fours set in the center and then started assembling my card.

I started with my striped dp and layered up my carstock layers and my image. Then, I attached three different satiny ribbons that coordinate with my dp and added a bow. The MS butterfly punched with the same dp and a few pearls gives it the finishing touch it needed.

Be sure to stop by the DeNami Designs Blog to see the new Sketch Challenge and play along with us!
