Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!!

I used the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set to create my card today.

Here is our sketch...

My card base is Crushed Curry with a Tasteful Textile 3D embossed mat of Basic White. 

I cut a piece of Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper and stamped the flower stamp from Dragonfly Garden in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the flowers using these Stampin' Blends:
  • Dark Daffodil Delight
  • Dark Granny Apple Green
  • Light Highland Heather
  • Dark Soft Suede
I adhered the image piece to the mat with liquid glue. Then I stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden on a piece of Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the second smallest die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back and adhered it over a piece of Fine Art Ribbon, which I had glued down with Stampin' Seal.

Three Metallic Pearls finished the front of the card. Easy peasy!
