OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch #113

I'm back for my 2nd post today and then I'll be off to watch the race :)
This is the sketch for this weeks Stars and Stamps sketch challenge #113.
Here is the quick card I made for the challenge. I already had the image stamped and colored, so that was a real time-saver. It was stamped with Versamark ink, and embossed with gold ep, and finally colored with flourescent Copic markers. The image is from a retired SU! hostess set (Measure of Life?) and I've always loved this dragonfly image. I embossed a scrap of lime green cardstock with a swirly ef, added a loop of ribbon (at the top) and a few nailhead stickers at the top. The sentiment is by Northwoods and was stamped with Memento Danube Blue ink.. I'll be using this great sketch for a lot more cards I'm sure.
That's it for me today, so thanks again for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday!

WOW Carol, We are on the same wave length today. I have my card all planned out but not yet made and I was using the same colors as you did. GMTA I guess. I just came into my room for a short break and then back to "stuff" that needs to be done before I play. Anyway your card is just lovely. Beautiful coloring on such a pretty image. Love that ribbons also. Talk to you soon.
