DeNami Fresh Florals Hop

I have always loved the floral designs of DeNami and so I am very excited to see everyone's work here today!  Glad you could join us and I'm sure you're getting some beautiful ideas!

You should have arrived here from Annette but no worries if you didn't...you can always just head back to the DeNami Blog to be sure you make it to everyone on the list!  Not only so you don't miss any fun but also to be in a chance to win one of the two $20 gift certificates to DeNami's store! 
  
I had a very hard time deciding what to do and made several cards but finally decided on this one.  (Good thing my week got busy or I'd still be making more cards just because I'm never satisfied with any one in particular.)  This card is actually taken from an idea of a Linda/Linel class many years ago.  (Very talented women in Minnesota who got me hooked on DeNami too many years ago to count!)  I have been wanting to play with some of the beautiful floral papers of DeNami and this one shows it off with a bit of elegance I think!


I happened to have some cute ribbon with similar colors and polka dots so thought I'd play with this method of sticky red tape and making the ruffle.  Ever have one of those times when in the middle of doing it you ask yourself, Why am I doing this!  After a little bit of challenge and ripping it off to replace, I decided it could stay!


After lifting up the card you find another tiny card where a written message can be placed.
Just a closer look to try and show the glitter, because most things are not complete without it for me!


Hope you are enjoying the wonderful ideas along the way.  Now you are off to see what Tammy has for you!

You have until May 20th, 2013, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
