Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate Dragonflies

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Karren.

As seems to be the norm for me, this card was planned to go in an entirely different direction.  I pulled out a variety of seasonal stamps out of my stash to play with - autumn leaves, snowflakes, little Christmas trees, a pair of snowmen.   But somehow I accidentally pulled a dragonfly set and look what ended up getting used!!

Celebrate Dragonfly

The images in the set weren't quite big enough to fill a regular card front - so I cut the card down to 3 1/2".  Then the sentiments in the set were too big for my narrow card front so I went digging for a tiny little sentiment that fit.  I think I should have stuck with the falling leaves or the Christmas trees - but I am always happy to have another birthday card in my stash!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week.
