Thankful Dragonfly

Mornin', peeps!  How's it going this fine Wednesday morning?

I took a break from baby books yesterday to work on some other projects, including today's card.  And you knew I wasn't going to stray far from the butterflies and dragonflies for long, right?

I do totally love this stamp set.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to get it first thing.  All of the stamps I used today are from Awesomely Artistic except for the "so much" part of the sentiment, that's from Crazy About You that goes with the Hello You Thinlits.  I thought about adding some pearl accents to this, but I decided I liked it the way it was.

This awesome color combo is courtesy of the folks at Fab Friday:

Of course, I added Sahara Sand to balance out those three strong colors.

Okay, I'm off to work in my craft room again.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Awesomely Artistic, Crazy About You
Ink:  Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand
Paper:  Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand, Whisper White

Oh, Christy, I really like this card. It is beautiful. The colors are great and I like how those dots on the background flow diagonally through the card. Just beautiful. I really do like that thinlet saying -- are those difficult to adhere? I usually use glue, but I'm betting you have another method.

I saw SO MANY dragonflies hovering over the lawn as I mowed Monday night. I don't remember seeing them before, but they were all over the front near the corner. As I mowed from the outside in, they seemed to narrow their field of flight -- then they were gone. I think they liked the longer grassy area. Wonder what was there that interested them so much. They can be pretty aggressive, so I was surprised they didn't challenge me. Fun to watch, though!

Gosh, I wish we had more dragonflies here in AZ - we'll have to settle for your gorgeous card, lol! I love the layout you've used here - it really shows off all the elements and details you've brought together with such skill! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
