DeNami Design Sketch Challenge #6

Hello, friends! I'm sorry I've been absent from blogging for several weeks. I have a great excuse, though. I've been co-writing a new musical comedy, and it will be opening the theatre's season in March! Stay tuned for more details about the show (my first time writing an original show!) and the theatre's exciting rebranding! I'll create a separate post all about it, but's all about the card I just made! I've actually created several cards, and I hope to get them all posted soon, so check back often!

I'm thrilled that after the holidays, DeNami Design has started their challenges again. The winner of the challenges wins a gift certificate to DeNami's website, and I am DESPERATE for some of their newly released stamps. If you haven't seen the new stamps, check them out NOW. No, seriously....I can wait. Check 'em out. Did you see them? How cute are those kitties and all the under the sea stamps? Plus, the hatching chickie?! UGH. I am so inspired to design with these stamps. I'm just hoping to get my hands on some of them soon. *fingers crossed* The first challenge of 2011 is a darling sketch challenge featuring a sketch by new DT member Laurie. She has a lovely blog, so make sure to check it out!

My card was inspired by the beautiful winter wonderland that we've had here recently. I like to call it "Disney snow" because it is so picture perfect. I'll be honest. I'd love some warmer weather, but the snow is truly beautiful. To set the mood for the snowy card, I wanted to use all pearly papers that shimmer like the snow in sunlight. I wish you could see how it shimmers in these pictures, but here it is!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Don't forget to check back soon for more cards and information about my new show!

May your creative juices always flow!
