DeNami & Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges

Friday, August 27, 2010

For this card, I decided to combine two challenges. The first is DeNami's Theme Challenge #3, and the second is Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 82. Check them out! I thought they were great challenges.


I didn't use any special techniques on this card. Just lots of basic stamping, die cuts, and punches! I love adding's rare that I make a card using only cardstock. WIth all the amazing embellishments out there today, how could you NOT! I used 2 DeNami buttons from the great bag of buttons I bought at their booth at CHA. It's such a good mix of different styles and sizes. I also used ribbon from Paper Trey Ink. Glad I made that purchase ;-)
