Dragonfly Wings

Good Morning everyone!
I'm back for my third week as the September Guest Designer at Tuesday Throwdown!

The theme this week is Things with Wings and the sponsor is My Grafico... my cards features the fun doodle flower dragonfly image! The dragonflies are colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I printed an extra dragonfly so I could layer the larger one. The background is embossed with the CB Mesh folder and the fishtail flag was cut with a MFT die. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the postage stamp/sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  I used a CB die for the flower and it's cut out of a used-dyed baby wipe. It's just like working with felt but thinner... I explain a little better about recycling baby wipes in this post if you're interested! :) To finish my card I added a black button and some gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to

I find it really difficult to make cards with lots of green myself, so I'm really impressed by your design! Great idea to use black as an accent with this lime green color scheme! Fab card, Tammy!
