DeNami Designs Monochromatic Blog Hop


hi there! and welcome to the DeNami Designs Monochromatic Blog Hop! can you believe all of the fabulous creations so far? everything is so inspiring! this is my first time participating in a blog hop, and i'm super excited!






here are a few things to keep in mind:


The blog hop starts on April 10 at 6 AM,PST. However, you have until April 11, 2011, 11:59pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize). denami will be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!


you should have arrived from Virginia Larsen's blog - amazing!! if you've stumbled upon this or got lost, head back HERE to the denami designs blog to start over!




anyway, here is my card:




i made this card while i was visiting my best friend in florida! she was an all day crop, and i crop-crashed in for a few hours! danielle (girlracer scrap - also on this blog hop!) was so kind to let me use all of her stuff, since i was just in town for the weekend and didn't bring any supplies with me! i used the fabulous owls from the owl trio stamp set - love them!! they're so adorable! i can't get enough of owls! :)




i stamped (and fussy cut) the owls multiple times and popped up two of them for some dimension! i stamped the sentiment on some wasabi tape and made a few pleats for some added texture! i used some brown and white bakers twine to frame the patterened paper, and i really like that look!




so that's it! now it's time for you to continue on your journey! the next stop is Kimmy Kowalik and you're in for a treat! :)




thanks for stopping by!

enjoy!
