Dragonflies Happy...ATSM #141~Anything Goes, Winnie and Walter~Join in to Win, So Suzy Stamps April~Birthday, Uniko Studio Challenge #20~Things with Wings

Hello,

Welcome to
Addicted to Stamps and More #141 where my fabulous design team and I are inviting you to join us in showcasing cards that are *Anything Goes*.  

As you well know, I love my butterflies, but I also have a fascination with dragonflies (the images of them...the real ones are scary, all that random flittering and fluttering!).  I discovered a sweet new dragonfly image over at So Suzy Stamps that I *had* to order and *had* to ink up.  Aren't those swirls and twirls so pretty! I went with a 'first time simple' approach, using three colours of Memento dew drops, as well as a heaping helping of stickles to create shimmer and a Winnie and Walter die cut and sentiment.  I have plans to colour them with my chameleon pens at some point...lots of possibilities...




  For extra 'join us' incentive, the winner will receive 4 digis from Sweet Pea Stamps.


http://www.sweetpeastamps.com/

Prize is 4 digis from the store

After visiting my wonderfully talented team mates' creations, which are guaranteed to dazzle and delight, design  your Anything Goes card/project to share in the ATSM gallery.  I'm looking forward to being inspired by your creativity!

I'm also adding my card  to:


 



Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

I love dragonflies too Carol, but I also love the real ones as well. There is just something magical about them as they sparkle, flutter and flitter around. I love the iridescence look they have. They just capture my attention just like your card has! I love your dragonflies and I love how you stamped them in a few colors. The stickles sparkle looks so pretty and makes them look more real. Such a great card my friend! Hugs, Brenda
