I got the Catherine Pooler Flight of the Dragonfly some months ago because I loved the samples in which those detailed butterflies were colored in multiple bright colors. Funny thing - when I get around to using the set, I simply white embossed them - no coloring at all! I'll color them before it's over but I loved the idea of multiple stripes with simple dragonflies. I actually started out with plain black and white dragonflies but they needed a bit more color.
The sentiment is from Pinkfresh. I wasn't sure what type of card I was making when I added the dragonflies. As I paged through my stash, this sentiment jumped out because of its font - it just felt right for the look of the card.
I already have another card done with these dragonflies - I think I'll post on Friday - and guess what? They still aren't colored in! I had a couple of extras from this card as I experimented with various colors. I think this set is going to have to stay in my not-yet-used stash until I used it in the way I had planned.
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
