Time to refill the thinking of you card supply.  I like having cards with a inspirational message to send out for many reasons.

Distress paints were used to create the background.  I wanted it to look distressed and whimsical.  Then I put Versa Mark through circles on a stencil. White embossing powder was added to the circles and heated.  The dragonfly was black embossed and then a mint pearl embossing powder was applied to the inside wings.  It was placed on a doily.  The sentiment and black chevron was stamped to finish the card.

 I get to go to Becca's to see her new house and use her craft room this weekend...super excited...and...she is going to show me some new techniques...and I have a list of  stamp stuff we need to try!

Thanks for stopping by!
