Hibiscus

Hi there! It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design!!! Today we're featuring THIS beauty:


And here's my creation:


The hibiscus reminds me of sunny days at the beach, so that's where my color inspiration came from! I LOVE these patterned papers from October Afternoon and Echo Park and thought they were the perfect fit! I wish I would have had a slightly darker shade of aqua ink (like the background on the larger polka dot paper) to stamp out the hibiscus image. I feel like it looks a little washed out (although if I tilt my computer screen back just a little, it looks much better...hmmm....).


So...what do you think? I hope you like my card for today!!! Be sure to head on over to the DeNami Design Blog to check out all of the FABULOUS ways my fellow DT gals have used this same stamp!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
