Happy New Year and Dragonfly Dreams!

Happy New Year and all the best for 2018!  I look forward to a fresh new start.  The new year and Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge both inspired me to create my card.  I chose the colors of Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party which to me remind me of spring.

The background on the larger layer I created using the smoosh ink technique with Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.  The background on the smaller layer I created with the dot stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams set.  The dragonfly I die cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper then embellished with basic rhinestones.

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge.  I was also inspired by page 4 of the Occasions Catalog to create this birthday card.  I used the Party Wishes Stamp Set and the Party Punch Pack bundle and Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the ‘It’s My Party’ suite.

I sponged the colors of Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo over the embossed portions to create a fun festive background.  I fussy cut the cake and die cut the balloons and candle.
