Tongue in cheek

Hi - how are you this fine morning? 

Bit cooler here, not sure if rain is in the air so thought I would be early this morning
with my card and get out into the garden while I can. 

A little bit of tongue in cheek here for The Craft Barn Challenge
as there is usually a twist of adding a dragonfly :) 

So here is one all by itself. 

I started off with one of my background cards which is one of my trade marks 
for my cards. Making my own backgrounds with mopped up inks, paints or powders. 

 Added colour to the edges and then stamped the Clarity Stamp dragonfly 
with AlteNew ink onto the cut down card stock

The mounted to a white card blank - again I used the same ink as the edges around 
the edges of the card blank.

Added die cut out sentiment Happy Birthday 

A nice quick simple CAS card 

I hope you like it  and would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping over. 

I look forward to seeing you again very soon.
