Can't Get Enough of These Dragonflies!

I'm sitting here in the "morning room" with the sunshine streaming through the window! I'm so warm, so lazy right now and just want to curl up next to my daughter! She's laying in the sun like a cat enjoying the warmth! Something else that makes me think of warm sunny and lazy days of summer are dragonflies. I love these dragonflies! This stamp is one that I am having just so much fun with. It's another one that I got from The Rubber Cafe as part of my DT package




I used a recent challenge from SplitCoast Stampers for this layout. If, by chance, you haven't discovered SplitCoast Stampers website go check it out now! It's an excellent source of inspiration!

Here's a breakdown of what I used to create this card;

Stamp - The Rubber Cafe Large Paisley Dragonfly

Ink - Timber Brown Staz-On ink

Paper - Basic Grey Marrakech paper pad, SU for the solid colors

Accessories - Prima flowers, Making Memories Star brads

Punch - Martha Stewart leaf punch

The holes were made using my SU Mat Pack and paper piercer

I have some more neat projects coming with these dragonflies so I hope you come back soon!

Until next time....
