Dragonflies


Hello! This card is a kind of tribute to the really huge dragonfly that seems to have taken a liking to our drive at the moment. He follows you round like a small aircraft and it's slightly off-putting as he makes a bee-line for your head! I looked him up on a dragonfly identification website and he's a southern hawker apparently.

This card uses the lovely Wood Words stamp set for the background and sentiment. I really love this stamp set and have used it for all kind of cards recently. The colour scheme here was inspired by the challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Such a pretty combo of colours!

 
 
The design of my card was inspired by this week's Global Design Project where it's a 'Case the Designer' challenge.
 
 
I love this type of challenge because I tend to start off with one idea in my head and it often becomes something completely different as I go along!
 
I'm also sending my dragonfly along to see Di and Parsnip at Pixie's Snippets Playground because I've been AWOL lately. I know if there's anyone who would appreciate being dive-bombed by a large dragonfly, it's Parsnip!

  2. Wow, what a lovely card April! But Parsnip isn't so impressed :) Are you sure your dragonfly isn't just a small drone, spying on you? And, what a pretty colour combo - you nailed it perfectly!

    1. Ha ha! Yes, I'm thinking he could well be a spy drone, Di. He's definitely big enough :-) Xx
