You Give Me Wings Dragonfly Card

I am thrilled to share with you my latest project (a joint effort by myself and 8 year old dd).  Joy got excited about the theme of the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut this week, being "Don't Bug Me".  We always love to get out our Peachy Keen Stamps, so we are pleased to enter the "Just Cards" challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog this week as well.  Here is what I came up with: 

I knew I wanted a cheery card, fresh and bright.  The cute dragonfly is from Paisley.  The card base is from A Child's Year.  The cuttlebug-embossed vellum wings were Joy's idea.  I also used Design Studio to outline the body of the dragonfly with a dark green marker (really makes it pop!) and rubbed a little chalk on the cheeks for blush.  The heart is an old CM punch, punched from pink glitter cardstock.

This happy sun is from Pack Your Bags and I just love it.

This sentiment (took me a while to find one I liked among my stamps) is a Sweet N Sassy stamp and I think it's just perfect!

Some rhinestones for bling.  Penstitching for pop. An Action Wobble and the sun is just dizzy with delight!

Here is my dd's card.  I adore the whole thing, from her own unique saying to her doodles!

Have a happy day!
