Happy Sunday folks:)
I'm raising a glass to my Dad today. Although he died 6 years ago, he would be 90 today! Cheers to you Dad. *mwah*
I'm also posting today for the Buttons and Bows Blog Hop along with some other Denami friends. I'm the last stop and you should have come from Stacy's blog.
Did you make it all the way through?
For a chance to win one of two $20 Gift Certificates, be sure to check out the full list of participants on the Denami Blog and leave a comment on each person's post.
I have two cards to share today.
The first one uses both the small and large daisy blossom stamps, along with a simple sentiment from the Assorted Greetings set. Their centers are white boutique buttons with twine to match the patterned papers. I drew the stems with a brown marker and added the double hemp bow, then stitched the entire panel onto a card base.
This one could be used for a masculine graduation, Bar Mitzvah, or even a wedding.
I was trying to get the feel of a button down dress shirt with a cummerbund below. Did it work? Can you see the picture in my head? *chuckle*
I used the houndstooth background stamped twice. First in light grey, then in dark grey off to the side a bit to add a shadow. Two white boutique buttons were sewn to a cardstock strip with stitching and the grey ribbon was tied below. A simple congratulations sentiment was all it needed to finish:)
I'm sure you've been inspired by all the creative goodness in this month's blog hop!
I can't wait to see what everyone has to share:)
Thanks for stopping by, good luck winning the Gift Certificate!
