I came across this sketch on the CAS(E) this Sketch blog and was immediately intrigued:
I then went and laid down on the couch for an afternoon snooze and woke up with the following card idea ready to go! I love it when that happens!
I see a lot of butterfly stamps and dies, but the dragonfly is much rarer to see in the stamping world, I wonder why that is? I’ve had this die from Clearly Besotted Stamps for quite a while but could never figure out how to use it. This sketch showcases it beautifully!
I’ve really been wanting to use this polka dot paper, I think it’s super cute and I found that Hibiscus Burst really pops with it! I applied Wink of Stella liberally to the dragonfly and then popped him up on really tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. Can you see the shimmer?
A few moonshine sequins from Simon Says Stamp adds interest and sparkle and I managed to find the perfect pink paper for the envelope! Woot! I was starting to worry that my clean and simple days were over, I’m relieved to find that they aren’t!
We have rain in So Cal scheduled for today…yay!! Not a huge storm but we will take everything we can get. My thoughts are for those on the East Coast as this next storm blows through…please stay safe and warm!!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
