DeNami Design Mini-Card Blog Hop

Welcome to Five Pines!

I'm Andrea Fisher, welcome to my blog, it's good to have you drop by. You are nearly at the end of the DeNami Design Mini Card Hop...thanks so much for hanging in! You probably have arrived from
 Karen McAlpine 's blog 
and have plenty of new inspiration for your own creations.  I'm excited to have you join me and share my card with you. It's my first hop and I'm new to blogging (so I'm hoping  to keep the mistakes to a minimum.)


My card was inspired by the baby quilts I'm working on this summer. I love sheep...and the star of this card  is one of my first DeNami stamps...this adorable wee lamb, accompanied by two other DeNami stamps:


I've used Spellbinders dies for the circles and scalloped circles and cut this card in a large scalloped circle just off the edge at the fold to allow for a top fold.
Texture to imitate the sheep was from the D'vine Swirl embossing folder by Cuttlebug
It is topped by a black and white dotted ribbon from Craft Essentials line by JoAnn Fabric.
ink is Versa Color #14 Scarlet and black by Stamps by Judith
cardstock from Hollos

Thanks so much for stopping by on your way to more great fun with
