Hello Sunshine Card & Die-Namites Challenge

Hey Crafty Friends... Today is my first official post as a new member of the Die-Namites Design Team!! Woohoo!! I'm am so excited to get to work with such a talented group of ladies. Today I am sharing my project for September's Photo Inspiration Challenge.

Come on and join in on the fun! Use any die or group of dies from Die~Namites and let it be the STAR of your design. You can use these combined with colors, shapes, patrons, pattern papers, stamps, paints, stencils, etc. The sky's the limit!

Here's September inspirational photo...

Isn't it just gorgeous??

This monthly challenge will run until September 29, 2015 (8:55pm Eastern Time) and there will be a SPOTLIGHT feature of our Top 3 Favorites on October 15. Any style and all levels are welcome! Among the Top 3 favorites, there will be a random draw for a lucky and talented winner who will then receive the top prize. In order to qualify for the top prize, your project has to be NEW, that means not linked back to a previously made project. You are welcome to combine other challenges, but please limit your total number of challenges to no more than 5. 

The randomly selected winner will be awarded a $25 gift voucher to the Die-Namites online store! How AWESOME is that?!! 

Make sure to link up your projects onto the original CHALLENGE post 

 I love all the details in the photo... all the flowers, the arrangement, and all the gorgeous colors. I tried to incorporate all those elements into my card.

I shaded my flowers and leaves by airbrushing them with Sharpie markers. For the White flowers I cut the blooms separately from the flowers, using the Flowers and Leaves die, and layered them onto another flower, then adhered it to a coordinating color patterned cardstock so the would be solid flowers and leaves. I did the same with my purple flower cut from Flower Vase die, this time snipping off just the flower and stem and discarding the vase. 

To finish off my card, I added leaves I cut form Die-Namites' Small Ivy die and arranged them behind all my flowers and added paper stamens, Prima Flowers, rhinestones, and glitter enamel dots.

Card base and band were embossed with folders by Anna Griffin . Scalloped oval and oval punches by Marvy Uchida. and Stamped Sentiment by Virginia Turtle.
