Get Whale Soon

Hello, blog friends! It's time for a brand new challenge at DeNami Design!!! YAY! This time around it's a color challenge (navy blue, lime green, and white):


Here's my take on the color combo:


I featured the adorable Whale H83 and Get Whale Soon F202 sentiment from DeNami Design! I LOVE paper piecing this little guy/girl!

The navy and white polka dot strips are fabric tape that I purchased from the Tinted Mint months ago and have been hoarding (it's just so stinkin' cute---I don't want to run out! HA!). 


The buttons are lime green but for some reason want to look more yellowish in my photo. They're from my bag of Tutti Fruitti Boutique Buttons (DeNami Design). Have you ever purchased a bag of these buttons? It's like receiving a little bag of treasure!!! You'll find buttons of all sizes and shapes---round, square, glittered, striped, flower-shaped, etc. I found a FISH-shaped button in my bag of Tutti Fruitti buttons! It's so much fun just digging through the bag to see what you'll find! Makes me feel like a kid again!


I hope you like my card and are inspired to play along in the DeNami Design Color Challenge! Head on over to the DeNami Design Blog for all of the details and to see more inspiration from the incredibly talented DT! I can't wait to see what you create!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
