Hooray For Spring!!

This morning at 0744 it will officially be Spring! I am SO excited for warm weather to come AND stay! Thinking about this warm weather and playing around with my new DT stamps from The Rubber Cafe really made me want summer to come fast! I wanted to do something a little different here. A clean cut card so you could see all the detail in this dragonfly stamp!

It's part of the paisley designs that are available at The Rubber Cafe and is called "Small Paisley Dragonfly"! I see this as having so many possibilities don't you?! You could color it in, emboss it (which I have a sample to post next!) just do it in different color inks like I did, use it as a background many options! I also wanted different words from what I was finding in my personal stash of stamps so, using my JustRite stamps with my "curlz" font I made my own! How often does that happen that you want words but to only use them once?! It happens to me a lot so I got these stamps and now I can put whatever I want on my cards! Here's a list of what I used to create this card;

Stamps - The Rubber Cafe Small Paisley Dragonfly ,
JustRite stamps

Paper - Kraft paper from PaperTrey Ink, black and white from SU

Dry Embossed Lines - Scor Pal
