PDCC 73 & Denami

Hey there everyone, it's Thursday!  I love Thursdays because it's time for another challenge over at the Play Date Cafe today!

These are our lovely colours picked by Julie Ranae.  I really love the colours together, very pretty! I couldn't quite match up the golden colour so went for more yellow tones.   I wouldn't have put these colours together myself which is what I love about these challenges, they take you out of your comfort zone and you can be surprised at what you create.

I was really fortunate to receive two pretty little stamps from Denami to play with, plus some gorgeous buttons! This is the floral image up close, plus the little sentiment is showing on the tag

Here's how it was made...
  1. Dry emboss pink panel
  2. Cut two strips in gold/yellow patterned paper, cut two strips in black, punch border edge and attach to centre panel
  3. Die cut label in lilac, and again in a smaller size in gold/yellow paper
  4. Stamp Denami stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, die cut with circle and attach to a die cut black scallop circle
  5. Using Smooch paints colour the little flowers and butterflies 
  6. Assemble label as shown and attach using pop dots
  7. Stamp sentiment and die cut using tag 
  8. Tie ribbon around panel before attaching to card base.  As you tie the bow add in the little sentiment tag with some twine before finishing the bow  
  9. Attach buttons to corner to finish
  10. Hope you like the little flowers, I think they look like little fried eggs!! Hmmm, maybe next time pink would make a better colour for the centres!
