Dragonfly Thank You

Happy Friday and TGIF. I am so glad it finally arrived. Jessie and I are headed out of town early tomorrow morning. We normally head to the beach at least 5-6 times from March thru October but I think this year we have made it 3 times. Last attempt was foiled by Tropical Storm Bonnie as me made it to St.George Island just to turn around and head back home 2 hrs later when the heavy rains did not appear to be letting up.
I am a firm believer in staying away from the coast when there is a threat of evacuation. Residents do not need tourist when evacuations are going on.
Anyway we are going to attempt it again tomorrow in spite of Earl and Fiona that is behind Earl.
Anyway onto my card. I used some basic gray dp and some banana, vanilla and brown cs.
My image is a darling dragonfly from PRISCILLA STYLES digital images that I colored with copics then topped off with some stickles. I love how the stickles shimmered in light. It made the wings look irridescant. I sponged some antique linen around my image after trimming and embossing with Nesties Circle.
My color combo is from CRAFT DIGITAL ART CENTER COLOR CHALLENGE # 5. My layout is from MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE # 69. I used some browwn ribbon and topped it with a yellow button threaded with some gold cording. My brown cs layer was embossed with Herringbone. Hope you like it. I also hope everyone has a safe, dry, and happy Labor Day. I will be back Tuesday morning.
Next week is going to be in disarray as my carpet is being taken up and replaced with wood pattern linoleum. Whoo Hoo, can't wait but I really can not wait to get my craft room back together. I can not find anything bc it has all been packed up for over a week now.
