DeNami Design Blog Hop

It's DeNami Blog Hop time & I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog. If you're going in order, you were just inspired by the talented Donna Bowman! I signed up for the hop with the idea that I would make pinwheels.  The card design just kind of evolved as I worked.  I made my double-sided cardstock using DeNami stamps Gingham Background stamped with VersaMagic Pixie Dust & Leafy Pick stamped with VersaMagic Pink Petunia.  
Gold sequins & pink enamel dots cover the centers where the points come together. I masked the sentiment (also DeNami) so I could stamp just the word Hello on a flag cut with vellum attached to white cardstock. Some very old & discontinued gold dots were added. The card front is debossed with a Cuttlebug folder that was first inked with the Pixie Dust. To finish off my card I glued on the pink trim. I cut the back circle with a craft knife so 
the card will stand.
All the hop details including prizes & the list of participants can be found on the DeNami Design Blog. Better keep going--lots to see!  Next up is the super creative DT member & someone I consider my friend, Emily Keaton. Enjoy the hop!
