Artistically Awesome Showcase - Day Two

HELLO...hello...hello!  Gosh..it's already 4pm!  My hubby came home EARLY from work...and got on the computer before I could get my post in!  Of course, it didn't help that I went for a hike with my kids this morning!  

I have a great card to share with you today!  I have a friend who is a VERY TALENTED artist.  She put a picture on her facebook page....the colors were so beautiful that I decided to use the picture to inspire today's card!




Aren't these colors AMAZING?!!!  SO VIVID!  SO BEAUTIFUL!

Here is how you can see my friends art!  I can't wait to hang my pieces!




OR



Here's my card!  I chose the colors Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.  I also used Pool Party for a wash beneath the dragonfly!  I LOVE this stamp set so much!  

For the dragon fly I used my Stampin' Write markers...Basic Black and Bermuda Bay.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds after the ink dried with a bit of glue from the 2-Way Glue Pen.

I cut the circle in the piece of Cajun Craze cardstock with the Circle framelits and then embossed it with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.




The butterflies are made with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.  
I added a vellum punched butterfly to the Elegant Butterfly with a tiny paperclip.


To finish the card off, I added some White 1 1/4" Jute Ribbon, with an Antique Brad and tied a few bows with pieces of 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon.  LOVE THIS LOOK!




...as usual....don't forget to decorate the inside of your card...but leave plenty of room to write a note!  What a blessing your card will be to someone!
