September InspireInk Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Hi there,

Welcome back to our September blog hop. Hopefully you have hopped here after admiring the lovely Anna's beautiful project. This month our theme was chosen by the lovely Hannah McCurley and she has given us a fabulous sketch to work with.
After puzzling over the sketch for a while, here is the card I came up with:

Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits from Stampin Up

I got out my dragonfly dies, which haven't seen the light of day for a while, sop I was pleased to have the opportunity to use them again. Are you wondering where in the catalogue is the multicoloured glimmer paper?

Well I'll let you into a secret - I die cut the dragonfly from siilver glimmer paper and then coloured it with our Stampin' Blends pens. Effective eh? There seems to be no end to the versatility of our Blends - definitely well worth having!

And the little heart thank you shape is from the Little Elephant set - another one that I need to use a lot more!
