Denami Color Challenge #6

Hello Everyone!

I created today's card for the Denami Designs Color Challenge #6. For this challenge participants were asked to create a card that uses the colors navy, lime, and white and at least one Denami stamp.

I decided to use the small side-view sheep #C71, the mini grass #B87, and the small Happy Easter #F160 stamps on my card. I chose a blank navy blue card and lime green tag for my layering paper. I ran the lime tag through a Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder and used a Martha Stewart edger punch to embellish one side of it. The embossed swirls make me think of the way sheep's wool is often illustrated in children's books. I added a strip of white tag behind the punched dots to draw more attention to them.

I stamped a sheep on each of four white 1.25" squares. Then I masked each sheep and stamped grass onto those same squares. I stamped 4 additional sheep, ran them through a Cuttlebug Small Dots embossing folder, and fussy cut them before I used foam tape to layer them on top of the other sheep. I mounted each white square onto a 1.5" navy square and ran those squares through the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.

I stamped "Happy Easter" onto a scrap of white tag and mounted it onto a piece of navy tag. I added some tiny lime green brads to either side of the text.

I decided the card needed some bling so I added some navy and lime dimensional stickers to it.

The card "feels" like Easter to me. The colors make me think of the patent leather shoes, straw hats and white gloves I wore on Easter many years ago.

Have a great day!

Such a super duper cute Easter card, Carol! I LOVE those little sheep in the grass and the embossing is a GREAT detail (it DOES look like the curls of sheep's wool)!!! Thanks for playing along in the DeNami Design Color Challenge!!!!
