Inspired by a Dragonfly

I told you I'd show you that old card that I used as inspiration for one of this month's Stamp-a-Stack cards... here it is:

Again, I do not remember where I originally saw this (I made this over a year ago, I think), but it is very much CASEd! This gorgeous dragonfly came from the now retired Measure of a Life set. (I still have a brand new one available if anyone's interested! You can see the details here.) The background stamps were Linen and French Script (both also retired). The colors here are Basic Black, Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, and Confetti Cream. I watercolored the dragonfly with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aquapainter, and then sponged the whole cream piece with some Chocolate Chip ink. There's a few pieces from Hodgepodge Hardware, along with some ivory Organdy ribbon (also retired).

It may have mostly retired products, but this was one of those cards I just couldn't ever give away. It's one of my favorites.
