DeNami Sketch Challenge #2


I love to work with sketches for both cards and layouts-sometimes it's just the springboard that I need to jump-start my creativity. Sometimes I see a sketch and immediately know which products that I'm going to use with it. That's what happened when I saw this month's sketch for the DeNami Design Sketch Challenge. I just love these little Safari Animals and knew that the three of them would be perfect with this sketch.
I started with a kraft card base, then added a fun banner cut from American Crafts patterned paper. I popped this up using foam squares. Then, I stamped, colored, and flocked the Safari Animals, matting them with lime, navy, and orange cardstock. I also attached these with foam squares. Finally, I stamped my sentiment across the bottom using the All Occasions stamp set.
I hope you can all play along with this week's Sketch Challenge! As always, there are some fun DeNami products to be won! Please check out the DeNami blog for details and to see all of the fun cards created by the other DT members.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Sherri, this card is just spot-on! The Safari Animals make me smile every time I see them, and you showcased them in such a fun way. The flag border at the top is GENIUS (totally stealing that idea now!).
