Dragonfly Birthday.

I've just come back from Bendigo after visiting my Dad. It's his birthday on Tuesday, so we made this visit a birthday celebration and took him out for a nice lunch. I made him this card using this week's Get Sketchy #40 sketch.

I stamped the dragonfly onto white cardstock, sponged some Tim Holtz Distress Inks around it and used some Kindyglitz on the body and the wings. I stamped the dragonfly again onto acetate, put more Kindyglitz on the reverse side and just cut out the wings when it had dried and stuck them over the 1st image using dimensionals. I should have taken a side-on photo to show the dimension, but forgot to! The background piece is brown Core'dinations cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, other cardstock is Stampin' Up 'Not Quite Navy' and 'Kraft'. Not sure who makes the dragonfly stamp, it was a magazine freebie, the greeting is by Flourishes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Fabulous card! The embossing totally stands out and the distressing adds a perfect touch!
