Dragonfly Dreams and the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #307

Time for the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #307!   This is a great sketch by Kaylin, a designer on the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Design team.

Nice right?  I am going to walk you through my thought process while I was making this card.   I knew I wanted to use some Designer Series Paper (DSP) for one of the squares so I looked through my papers and decided on the Falling in Love DSP.   How did I make that decision?  Honestly, it is because I haven't used it very much and it is SO pretty.

Next I had to decide what was going on top of the DSP.  This was pretty easy since I also knew I wanted to use some Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.  I love how the dragonfly looks in gold foil with the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper underneath.

I do love this sentiment in the Dragonfly Dreams set because it can be used for lots of different occasions and also it fit in the space I had.   Once I had the sentiment stamped and the dragonfly ready I felt like there still was something missing.  I spied the dots stamp in the set and thought it would just be the perfect addition.   I added on the 1/4" Natural Gold Trim to tie in with the gold foil and then decided I might as well go all the way and added some gold sequins too!

I added a strip of the Falling Love DSP  to the inside of the card, this is my standard way of finishing the insides of my cards.  I also wanted to add some gold foil dragonflies.  I seriously love the column of little dragonflies in the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  I cut off the first and last dragonflies, so there are 3 little dragonflies instead of 5.

Be sure to check out what the other design team members created for this challenge and hopefully you will be inspired and participate in the challenge too!

Hope you enjoyed this walk through on how this card came about.  Honestly, I am not usually this methodical.  I will list all the supplies I used below.
