CR84FN #33!


Time for another color challenge! Aren't these colors we were given by CR84FN just dreamy! No...it's not for a valentine...it's for this vintage/whimsical summer card I have to share!



I chose to use a very soft red to give the card a vintage look and paired it along with different shades of pink. All of the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye: Stella Rose/Hazel Papers 6x6 pad.  I stamped my dragonfly in red ink and added a bit of soft pink chalk to the wings. I love the delicate look of this bug...HA! Don't think I've ever seen one quite this cute in real life!!! The line of  pink swirls behind it is from Past Time Stamps (no longer in business-boo). Smile is from Judith (one of her great little stick stamps). The scalloped circle and circle are Marvy punches, row of circles is a PTI die and finally a Martha Stewart: Vintage Doily border punch. A few sparkly buttons, strip of ribbon and a tiny gem complete my little whimsical card.

So the next time you see a dragonfly wisping about; think of this little cutey and have yourself a smile ~ Lisa
