Now ... on with the hop!!!
I went back to the basics with my card this time and used only cardstock. I once took a workshop at the CK convention where we rediscovered cardstock. Sometimes simple is better and Denami's stamps really stand on their own. You notice that I did use layering, die-cuts and dry paper embossing to show some texture and dimension.
I kept with the color pallette: red, pink, black and white. Love these colors together! I found these darling little heart buttons at Archiver's and let me tell you ... I adore them! I simply stamped the Denami Small Flower Spray stamp, colored the stems and leaves with Copic markers and then adhered the hearts so that they serve as the actual flowers.
I always like checking out Mojo Monday's sketch challenge for inspiration. The funny thing is that I had something in mind to create for the blog hop and it's very similar to the Mojo Monday sketch this week!
