DeNami Blog Hop

I'm thrilled to be part of DeNami Designs "Floral Frenzy" Blog Hop!

My card features a flowery whale, diving among doily waves. 

All of the designer paper is from my $1.00 Scrap Bags from my Stampin' Up! demo, Gail Murray.  I believe it was all from the same designer series, but don't know the name of it.

I paper pieced the whale and added a flower and rhinestone to her head.
The inside of the card includes some more decoration and a sentiment.

Details of the Blog Hop:

When:  It starts March 13 at 6 AM, PST.  You have until March 14, 2011 11:59 pm PST to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
