Dragonfly Dreams, Timeless Textures, You're Inspiring, Birthday Card

I'm still biding my time waiting for my new stuff to arrive!!!  I found this fun card on Pinterest and I had everything to make it.  I didn't use the same colors but it's close enough for me!!!

The base of this card is a folded half sheet of Early Espresso card stock.  It's cut in half on the 8-1/2" side, so this card opens at the bottom.

On top of the card base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Crushed Curry.

The next layer is a 4-3/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Early Espresso card stock and the focal piece is Whisper White cut 4-1/2" x 3". 

I die cut a dragonfly from the "Dragonfly Dreams" bundle. I die cut it in Early Espresso and colored over it using the Wink of Stella pen.

Now for the fun part.  I took my sponge dauber and sponged on some Crushed Curry ink. I did twist the dauber to scrub the color onto the card stock. Then I came in with some Pumpkin Pie ink and did the same thing, plus I lightly added some around the open areas.  Next I took the ferny looking image from the "Timeless Textures" set and stamped off once using Bermuda Bay ink.  And for the final bit of color, I used the dotted image from the "Timeless Textures" and Early Espresso ink stamped off twice. I just dotted it on.

The words are from the "You're Inspiring" set and I stamped them using Early Espresso ink.  And that was it!

I taped the Crushed Curry to the card base.  I taped the Whisper White piece to the Early Espresso piece and I set that on the card using Dimensionals.  I added two pieces of Dimensionals to the upper part of the dragon fly and set it in place on the card.  

I thought this was a fun card to make.  And pretty too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
