Dragonfly Birthday

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I hope you are enjoying the holidays and that the weather is treating you well. Here in Melbourne, we had some heavy rain to end a steamy, humid week and many people were caught out on the road and had backyards and some even their homes flooded. I was lucky and only had water lapping at the back door and not inside.

In the week before Christmas we had a trip into town to see the Nutcracker Ballet with my lovely friend Katerina and her daughter Miss N - and it was a good time to pass on a card and small gift for Katerina's Birthday on Christmas Eve.

The card is a CASE from the Stampin Success Magazine - I loved the effect and changed the orientation of the card but kept the general idea. An Aquapainter on Watercolor paper was used to colour the butterfly and for the background, used the lid of the Aquapainter to help me flick on some colour. Then added plenty of Wink of Stella to cover the die cut Dragoanfly.

Card stock: Dapper Denim, Whisper White, Watercolor Paper, Soft Sky
Ink: Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral
Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams
Accessories: Big Shot, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Aquapainter, Wink of Stella, Brights Enamel Shapes

And I also made this cute little gift bag to hold a gift voucher I made for her too. It uses the same stamp set for the sentiment and the Blooms and Bliss DSP for the bag itself.

Underneath the shortened Hello Lovely layer, is where the gift tag is. There are three layers and the
the bow and handle keeps them all together.

Card stock: Soft Sky
Designer Series Paper: Blooms and Bliss
Ink: Dapper Denim
Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams
Accessories: Big Shot, Mini Treat Bag Framelits, PL Hello Lovely Card Collection, Bakers Twine Trio Pack (Gold)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all have a very Happy New Year and that 2017 is a wonderful year for you and all your family!

Happy stamping until next year :-)
