Dragonflies



This is one of my favourite stamps and comes from Stamper's Anonymous. I'm intrigued by the design which resembles an architech's drawing. I added little jewels on the body, and embellished with cording and old looking money found in the bead section at Walmart. The card still looked too bare so I went downstairs into the scary basement (it's full of junk and about to be renovated), and squeezed through a ton of junk and located my childhood stamp collection. I knew I kept that book for a reason -- LOL, snort. Still thinking the card needed something more, I added two green brads. When it comes to making cards I certainly don't believe in "less is more." I like to add and add until I exhaust all options.
