Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  I had tried to get my card done last night, but my printer wasn't cooperating so I'm a little later than usual with my post.  But I am still pleased with the results.  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday and the challenge over at Digital Tuesday was to add some glitter.  Well, no dragonfly, in my book, have have glitterless wings.  LOL!  He's part of the Doodle Flowers set and so is the sentiment.  It's an awesome set!


What do you think?  I love the contrast between the black and baby blue and then having it all grounded by a Kraft base.


In this photo you can see the glitter.  I had a little accident with the Stickles bottle this morning.  It got clogged so as I was working to get cleared, I pressed a little too hard and a big clump came out!  So there's a bit of glitter on his body that wasn't meant to be there.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Kraft, black
Paper:  Digi paper (unknown artist)
Copics:  B000, C8, C10
Tools:  Scallop square (Nestabilities), Apron Lace border punch (Fiskars), white gel pen
Embellishments:  black stitched ribbon (Michaels), Diamond Stickles (Ranger)

I hope you like this card.  Now head on over to Lindsay's blog - she's always got a freebie to share along with some awesome ideas!!
