Dragonfly Friend

Hi and welcome back.  I've been invited to be Guest Designer at CASology because this card won last week's challenge!  

The cue word this week is....



I went with the obvious and chose winged creatures - in this case dragonflies.  



I've had these Magenta dragonfly stamps for several years and I just love their whimsical and sketchy look.  I gold embossed the large one once and the smaller one twice onto a tag die cut, deliberately leaving some parts of the stamps off the tag.  

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed.  My last few inches of white baker's twine were used on this card.  I know I bought another pack before we had to pack up our house for our earthquake repairs but do you think I can find it?  Looks like I'll have to buy some more.



I'm entering this card into the gold and white challenge at Fab Friday.  Congrats on 50 challenges!

Thanks for visiting.  And take the time to check out the amazing submissions from the CASology team.

Products used:

Stamps:  Magenta Dragonflies, Happy Hello (Verve)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Accessories:  white baker's twine, gold EP, clear EP, PTI Tag Die

Cheers
Karren

This is gorgeous, Karren! I too love the sketchy look of the dragonflies and love how they're fluttering on and off of the tag. The white on white with the gold is so elegant too!
