Denami Design Floral Frenzy Challenge

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment for the card I submitted to the Denami Design Floral Frenzy Blog Hop.  I truly appreciate all of your kind words.  It's been a long day.  I presented 2 two hour workshops back to back today and I am beat.  But... I couldn't go to bed without posting on my blog.

Since the blog hop filled so quickly everyone is being given a chance to submit a card for the Denami Design Floral Frenzy Challenge.  This card took a lot less time to create than my card for the Frenzy did, but I am happy with it. I used 3 Denami Design stamps to create it.
Medium round bowl # H82
Small blossom daisy #D75
Wavy stem trio #F187

I stamped the bowl onto a scrap of patterned paper, fussy cut it and glued it to a sheet of dotty patterned paper. I masked the top of the bowl and stamped the wavy stamp trio so they'd appear to be in the bowl. I stamped three daisies onto white tag, embossed them, and fussy cut them out before I used mini glue dots to adhere them to the wavy stems. Used mini glue dots to adhere a tiny brown button to the center of each flower.

I used one of my Martha Stewart edger punches to embellish the edge of a piece of green striped patterned paper. Added some baby green ric rac to my "window shade" along with some twine for the shade's cord.

This card feels summery to me and makes me think of a cottage at the beach.

Have a great night.

Hi Shirley,
I'll tell you a little secret about my corner. Often some place nearby is a disaster zone, but I keep this space clean and organized so I can sit here and feel at peace. It truly is the place where I feel the happiest in my home.
Thanks for commenting. Carol
