Crafts: Act 1: Scene 6: DeNami Sketch Challenge #4


Once again, I've completed a card in the final hour. Whew! The current challenge, which ends in just minutes, was to create a card using DeNami Design stamps and the above sketch (created by DeNami Design Team member Sherri). I LOVE sketch challenges, so I didn't want to pass up this opportunity. My inspiration came from holly berries. The three circles on either side of the center piece called out to me to be holly berries. From there, I build the card by gathering some of my favorite DeNami holly stamps.



I'd love to hear from you, so please leave a comment, and if you have any questions about products or techniques, please let me know!


Thanks,


Amy

Amy, I am so impressed that you were able to whip this card up so quickly! It just wouldn't have been the same without you..... I love the Holly Ball as the focal point- that stamp is so elegant and to see it glittery is just stunning! As usual, you did a fab job incorporating so many of our designs into one card!

Thanks for joining us in the DeNami challenge, girlie! Have a super great weekend at the classes!
