DeNami August Blog Hop!!

Well it is that wonderful time again-a DeNami Blog Hop!! BOLD, Bright and Beautiful! You should be hopping here from the 
spectacular Linda Monroe's blog )!!
If for some reason you started here at my blog, hop on over to the DeNami website to start from the beginning! Whoop whoop!!

Boy but I didn't know where to start with this blog hop, as I am a more neutral kinda coloring girl. SO I just grabbed my yellow paper and some old bright paper scraps I had tucked away in my drawer and started piecing. I first envisioned a more fruity card and my idea turned into something else completely! I used the Surfer Mimi stamp that I got at the Carson Convention last time and the little fruit petites along with the grapes. And the "Sending you Sunshine" Stamp that is one of my favorite sentiments of all time!


I cut the patterned paper to size then used the scallop border on the end to accent the purple color more. I hand cut a "Polaroid" box and then masked off the "picture" part. Stamped Mimi, then used a dauber for the sky. Colored her with some bright colored Stampin Up In Colors (from 2 years ago, my favorites!) Removed the masks and popped her up. Then I cut out the fruits and popped them up with dimensionals. Added stickles where I thought they would go and some crystal effects to accent the other. Then used a scrap piece of twinery Ocean color that I had left on the desk from a different project and tied a bow. VOILA!



I actually was going to use the latest DeNami challenge for this one but that card didn't really come out as I had in mind. So, I started with the Mimi card and I really liked how this one came out!
