DeNami Design Theme Challenge #1

Happy Friday, blog friends! Today I'm sharing a card I made for the DeNami Design's "Spring" Challenge! Click HERE to find out how you can play along!!!

The sweet "Round Leafy Tree" image is from DeNami Design. I colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers and then added some sparkle with my Clear Stardust Glitter Pen. I colored the leaves green because I wanted a "Springy" look, but I love how you could change this up for Autumn by coloring the leaves red/orange/yellow. Here's a close-up:

I used the new "Background Basics: Woodgrain" (Papertrey Ink) to create the background! (I'm seeing panels of this in a variety of colors in my future!!!) I die-cut the scallop strips from patterned paper and vintage cream cardstock on my Epic Six machine using the Medium Scallop Die from PTI. Then I stamped the vintage cream scallop with "Background Basics: Text Style II" (PTI). I created the rick rack with the Rick Rack Die from PTI.

I added the button at the last minute because I felt like I needed one additional touch of green.

One more thing before I go...
