DeNami Girlie Girl Blog Hop


Hi there!  If you are hoppin' in the DeNami Girlie Girl Blog Hop, you should have arrived here from Chrissie Tobas' blog. 

This is the third DeNami Design Blog Hop that I've participated in.  I love to do them!  The DeNami stamps are so sweet and I happen to own a couple of real cuties.  Today I am using a more elegant, feminine stamp called Love Script Heart.   


The card began with a piece of pink, cream and brown patterned paper from My Mind's Eye La Paperie.  I sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink around most edges, then stamped the Love Script Heart in Chocolate Chip on the paper. 



Pink and cream pearls were added here and there, to put in some much-needed bling.  This is, after all, a girlie-girl card!



Pink, polka-dotted ribbon is the final touch before mounting the piece onto Chocolate Chip cardstock, then the white base.

This is definitely a little work of heart - I mean art! That paper is just gorgeous and I loved how you stamped on it with the brown. Love the dotted ribbon - sort of picks up on the pearls in my thinking. Love the little pink pearls in the "o" in LOVE here and there! Sort of makes me hungry for Neopolitan ice cream though! Beautiful card, Colleen. Happy Mother's Day to you!
