De Nami Challenge

They are hosting a new challenge at the DE NAMI BLOG.  The challenge is to use a DeNami image to make a Boy themed card. Here is what I came up with.

I started with a white card, which I distressed around the edges, using Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.  Then I layered a black and cream dotted paper from October Afternoon.  I used a die from Papertrey Ink to cut another piece of October Afternoon paper with text on it. I distressed this with the same ink before adhering it to the card.  I then  ran a strip of black scalloped circles across the card.  It was punched with a new EK Success punch I picked up last week. I punched out my DeNami image and sentiment out with a 1 1/4 " circle punch and layered it on a 1 1/2" black punched circle.  I finished the card off with a black button, threaded with yellow Scarpper's Floss from Karen Foster.
