DeNami Design Summer Splash Blog Hop!

Hi There!
{This is my second post of the day, for my Paper Sweeties Design Team post Day 2 click here}

Wahoo! It's DeNami Blog Hop Time!!!
It's my favorite time of year! SUMMER!  
I totally run on solar power, so I am a happy happy girl this time of year!

your chance to win a mini DeNami Shopping Spree!
2 very lucky commenters will win $20.00 gift certificates!!
Here is what I have to share with you! 
I started with a bright, happy full of summer yellow card base onto which I added my patterned papers.  Some fun layers provided a backdrop for my Octopus which was paper-pieced to the center of a double stamped circle stamped in yellow ink using the Under The Sea Stamp set to provide a decoration in the center.. 

The sentiment was stamped and placed just below the focal image. 

A final finishing touch was to wrap a length of Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon around the card face
and tied in a double bow embellishing with an Aqua Boutique Button
I hope you're enjoying this theme as much as I am! I love reading each of your comments and they enter you to win one of those fabby gift certificates! :-)
