Dragonfly Dreams and the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #554

This week the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge is a sketch.  I knew  I wanted to use a patterned paper which made me think of  the Painted Seasons DSP which is available as  a level 1 Sale-A-Bration choice and a level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice paired with the Painted Seasons stamp set.

What to use for the little accents?  I thought about butterflies, birds and then it came to me...

Dragonflies!  I have been trying to look at my stamps, punches and dies from the annual catalog to mix in with my newer products.  I haven't used the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits in quite a while!  I cut them out in Early Espresso and knew i needed to fill in the wings.  I glued down the dragonflies and then cut out another set using Sparkle Glimmer paper.  I filled in the wings with the Sparkle Glimmer paper.  This was pretty but the Glimmer paper was too bright so using a cotton swab I colored the wings using Petal Pink ink.  This toned down the white and it worked better with the other colors on the card.

I added the "thanks" which I cut in Early Espresso card stock using the Well Written framelits (2019 Occasions catalog).  These framelits are some of my favorites, as you have probably figured out since I use them a lot.

Be sure to check out what the other members of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team created using this sketch.

Remember Sale-A-bration ends in just a few days!
