DeNami Blog Hop ~ Birthday!


Welcome! You should be arriving here from the talented Pattie Goldman's blog, if not  you can hop over to the DeNami blog at any time so you don't miss anyone. Now let's get to my card for the hop!
I must say I am completely smitten with this polka dot elephant by DeNami. Isn't it the cutest little thing! I stamped each in a different color, fussy cut, then added them to the panel with foam tape. My birthday sentiment was punched with a Marvey heart punch then layered to the green heart before adding to the card. I layered two sweet little heart borders (PTI border die) onto the panel. I add this delightful soft pink polka dot ribbon the the bottom heart to pull some of the softer pink to the front of my card. I aslo added the glitter pen to the sentiment and sprinkled on some gems to pull the shimmery look from the orange paper. 
I used the colors for the latest DeNami challenge given to us by the lovely Emily Keaton!
