Mindscapes Dragonfly

Published by at 11 38 am under General Purpose Cards,Inkadinkado

What a gorgeous set this is! I just had to use another image from it before putting it away. Two days ago I used the beautiful ladybug, and today I’m using this stunning dragonfly image. She is just SO pretty!!! I followed the Sketch Challengetoday over at SCS, and here’s my card:


Doesn’t every dragonfly need a bow on her tail? I thought so! She is paper pieced, just like I did my ladybug the other day. Here’s a closeup of this beautiful image:


Can you see the 3 gorgeous birds within her body? One on each wing and one in the center forming her body. I LOVE this stamp set — it is so, so pretty and fun to work with!!!
