This card was inspired by the sketch over at Mojo Monday. I've mentioned them before on my blog, but it bears repeating that every Monday they provide a fabulous new sketch.
I used a stamp set from Close to My Heart on this one. I love the spring look to it and with temps nearing 70 this week, it's definitely feeling like spring is on its way. The background paper is watercolor paper, and I colored all of the stamps with watercolors. I forgot how much fun they are to work with and how nice the results are! I used dimensionals on some of the flowers to give it a 3-D effect, and the dragonfly's wings are folded upwards to imitate flight. I used stickles on the raised flowers, the butterflies, the dragonfly wings, and the stems to give the card some shimmer. The paper is from DCWV--the Stack VI. I pierced a circle around the sentiment at the bottom for added interest.
Thanks for looking!
