Floral Frenzy Blog Hop with DeNami Design

Hello and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's Floral Frenzy Blog Hop!!! If you're on track you have arrived here from Andrea's blog! If not, no worries, you can start at the very beginning by heading to the DeNami Design Blog!

Here's my floral creation:


I used the Elegant Floral Blossom D128, which is one of my FAVORITE DeNami Design flowers!! The sentiment is also from DeNami Design---don't you just LOVE that font?!?!


I used some double-sided tape and DeNami Sparklets to create the glittery strip. The fancy edge punch is embossed, and I also embossed a rectangular frame around the entire focal point panel (although it's tough to see in the photographs). 


After creating this card, I thought it would be fun to make an entire set in a similar design with a variety of sentiments. I didn't have a chance to complete the set in time for the hop, but here's a glimpse at the pieces I have done so far:


I'll be sure to share the completed set on my blog when I'm finished!

So...what do you think? I hope you enjoyed my post! Be sure to leave a comment because DeNami Design is giving away THREE gift certificates to their website (one to a random participant and TWO to random commenters)!!! You have until March 14, 2011 at 11:59pm PST to comment and be eligible for the prizes!!!

There's even an EXTRA chance to win some DeNami stamps and a guaranteed spot on the next blog hop! Here how:

Extra Challenge: This blog hop filled SO quickly, so we thought we'd bring an additional opportunity for those who weren't able to get on the list, and also those blog hoppers who had additional floral projects to share. We will have a link widget on the blog hop post where you can upload additional floral creation(s).
