Jumbo Curiosity Dragonfly for Paper Players #654

Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's Clean and Simple Week.  Ann chose a great theme for our CAS challenge and one that inspired me to bring out one of my favorite dies - the Jumbo Curiosity Dragonfly die from The Greetery.

Here's a sneak peek:

Oh... and it's the second card in 24 hours that doesn't have a white base!!!! :-)

Here's Ann's challenge:

This card came together really easily.  I die cut the dragonfly and then blended his colors with my finger blenders.   I added some metallic watercolor paint splatters and then added some glue down the body of the dragonfly and spread some gold flakes on it.  I die-cut the tag and then embossed it with the Exposed Brick embossing folder from Stampin' Up! to add a little texture and interest.  I die-cut a second tag from Copper Clay card stock.  Really easy card to put together.

Here's my card:


I hope you will join us and play along with Ann's challenge.  As always the design team have some fun inspiration for you:

I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight,,

Jaydee the detail on your dragonfly makes this a standout centrepiece for your CAS card! I love the embossed and splatter detail - so fabulous!

Jaydee, Your dragonfly is gorgeous. The color, texture and gold touches really came together perfectly. It really pops off the white tag.

Two fabulous cards in a row, Jaydee! I love the colors you chose - that blue-green/turquoise combined with deep copper and then backed by a white textured tag is killer!
