Well, I'm running a little late today...usually I try to have my card made the day before so I can set up the blog post but I was working on the baby book yesterday and the card for today just didn't happen. But I did manage to get it done this morning!
When I was looking back through all my 2015 posts for the showcase, I noticed that it had been far too long since I played with the Awesomely Artistic dragonfly. I paired it with the new set Timeless Textures, and srsly, those two sets are a match made in stampy heaven. It's hard to tell in the photo above, but there's a rhinestone on the dragonfly's body for a bit of extra sparkle and to go with all the silver. If I had Wink of Stella glitter pens, I probably would have used that...I had planned to emboss the dragonfly with Iridescent Ice, but my girl dog Sadie was giving me serious goo-goo eyes because she wants to go for a walk. So I went with the faster rhinestone option.
These fabulous colors are courtesy of the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge:
When I saw that, I was like sign me UP because Bermuda Bay and Blackberry Bliss are some of my favorites, and I've been using Pear Pizzazz a lot lately (wait till you see Friday's post, which I already have done because apparently I have problems with working chronologically). Anyway, I also used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:
Very layery, but I refused to be intimidated and I do like how my card turned out.
So now I have two doglets giving me the googoo eyes. Guess I'd better put on my Eskimo outfit to take them for a walk...baby it's cold outside! Cheers, peeps!
