Summer Splash Blog Hop



We had a short camping trip on my days off so no blog posts for a few days.  I'm so glad to be back today with a summery note card using all DeNami stamps for my participation in this month's Blog Hop.   Deb Fischer just provided some inspiration if you're going in order.  To see the entire line-up & details about prizes head over to the DeNami Blog

I don't use a lot of yellow in my crafting, but it is perfect to convey the feeling of summer.  I paired it with some brightly colored butterflies.  I seldom use my Liquid Pearls so it was fun to find that the gold was just right for the bodies & it gave some texture, along with Stickles on the wings. This is my first card using the Solid Leaf Sprig & I was delighted to find that it makes a great background.  To cut the opening in the panel for my sentiment, a Lifestyle Crafts oval die was used. Yellow pearls finish off my simple card.  Hope you like it.  Next stop is one of the incredibly talented DT members, Dana Seymour. Enjoy the hop!
