Challenge Card for 2Sketches4You

Over at http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com they had this sketch up for this week. This is what I came up with:

The stamps are from CHF, Kim Hughes Shilhoutte Blooms and the dragonfly is from Inkandinkado, Patterned Bugs. The wings are popped up on deminsionals. The background panel is lightly stamped with chalk ink and the front panels are stamped in Adriondak ink in slate and Palette ink in Ballet Blue. The scallop border is a Martha Stewart punch. I used my Scor-Pal to add some scoring detail and used Antique Linen Distress ink around all the edges along with some darker brown chalk ink. The ribbon is from Mikes and if you click on the card you'll be able to see the shimmery dragonfly wings and a bit of sparkle on the flowers. I added the shine with my Sakura Clear Star pen. This was a fun sketch! Thanks for looking:)
