Challenge#18 - Crafting with Dragonflies

Hi Peeps

Firstly, yes I have changed my blog picture.  This is Marion Bay, on the East Coast of Tasmania. The Tasman Peninsular in the background and Bream Creek farming community in the foreground. This is quite like the view I grew up with - from my bedroom window each day - as our farm was not far from where this picture was taken. Love it!

On with the Dragonflies Challenge#18

We know everyone loves these challenges as it makes life easy BUT you still have to make a CARD for this new Challenge #18 at Crafting with Dragonflies - Anything Goes!

There are no sponsors images for us as a team to follow - we could do what we felt like - and I felt like making more cards using the images I mentioned from this post for Unstampabelles. The Graphic 45 blog site had some lovely inspiration on it so I borrowed a few ideas and using my own papers and embellishments, set to work. 

So pretty

I used a die cut from Memory Box I think to cut the stamp shape - I have misplaced the storage bag for this now and don't know where I got it from - the bird is a wooden one from Kaiser. It has been stained with Antique Linen TH  Distress ink, as have most of the edges of the papers.

Blue ribbon from the stash and a small key charm - the key to the Secret Garden door! 

Layers and layers of papers - such a good idea from the Graphic 45 blog! As was the idea of rolling the corners - I really like that. 

Bird by Kaiser and some bling and more layers

I will enter this in the following:

Just Inspirational:  Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: Bow Dies - yep and yep!

 Bearly-Mine colour inspiration

Our Daily Bread:  The colours and the shape in the dresser doors; layers and things behind thing....these were the inspiration
