Dragon Fly Thinking of You Card

Just a quick post to share a card for the Hambo Hoedown weekly challenge.  This week we are asked to choose a card from the Hambo galleries and CASE it.   

My card uses the free image from last weeks challenge.  **DragonFly**  If you participate by the Monday deadline, and follow the simple guidelines, you will receive the free image for this week.  How cool is that?  So be sure to stop by and check them out.

I printed the image twice on a piece of white card stock. I used the second image to cut wings from a floral card stock and then glued them to the image on the white card stock.  This gave the image a very nice dimension.  I colored the body with a greg water color pencil and then used Glistening Snow Writer to give it some dimension and some sparkle.  The image is double matted.  My paper is from the Premium Stacks Far East Stack and the card base is kraft card stock cut to an A2 card size.  A organza bow finishes the card.

Following is the image I CASEd by MacKenzie Bruckler and it can be found in the Hambo Gallery.  Here you will find all kinds of great ideas using their images.  What I liked about this design is the simplicity and the matted image.  And of course, the ribbon.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit.  
Have a wonderful evening!
