Friends and CAS

Good Morning!  This week's Friends of Speedy TV challenge is about making clean and simple cards.  I thought last week's challenge was right up my alley.  This challenge could not be more perfect.  After seeing one of my teammate's dragonflies from a challenge gone by, I knew I had to pull it out today.  Then I looked up something dragonfly images on line and copied the colors onto this beauty.  I embossed the wings onto vellum and then glittered up the whole dragonfly.
I borrowed the sketch from the clean and simple stamping blog.  It's Fall To Layout 251, only I have rotated it to the left 90 degrees and then turned it over (like you are viewing a printed sketch from the back side of the paper). 
 
Now, don't forget that Mark's Finest Paper is quite a generous company and offers a free stamp set to one randomly chosen participant.  You aren't required to use MFP stamps, but if you do, you are given another entry into the drawing.
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
