CTD#108

Here are the colors for the CTD#108. They look so earthy and calm, so of course I had to play along.
I started with a Kraft base, and added Chocolate Chip and So Saffron cardstock. The tiny dragonfly images are by CTMH and were stamped with Chocolate Chip ink, while the wings were embellished with a yellow souffle pen to brighten them up a bit. The ribbons and DP are from SU!, while the sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers, stamped in Chocolate Chip. The border was done with the MS arch lattice punch, and the "faux" brads are punches of Chocolate Chip cardstock covered with Glossy Accents. All of the Kraft card stock was sponged with Ranger's Antique Linen ink.
I was over at Michaels this morning with a friend and they're having crazy sales all throughout the store! Everything seems to be 40% off, so you don't need a coupon this week!! I came home with a fine black marker and a beading box to put my sponges in that cost a whole $1.99!! I'm taking a bow for showing so much restraint!! LOL
Oh BOY did it get hot in PA today! It's sweltering out there at around 98 degrees with barely a breeze! I'm staying indoors for the rest of the day and chilling!!
Make it a great day and thanks for popping in to say "hey!" :D
