Dreamy Dragonfly ~ MMSC10

Welcome once again to another fun~filled week with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!Don't forget we are looking for a Guest Designer Diva (or Dude) for August. Please be sure to leave a comment on the Midnight Madness Blog if you'd like to be considered. Everyone is welcome so come on! Don't be shy! We know you've got the Diva (or Dude) in ya!!!

As you can see, I varied a little from the sketch below, but that's what it's all about you know. Take a sketch and let it inspire you! It's O.K. if the shapes vary as long as we can still see the bones of the sketch. :)
Supplies: Dragonfly stamp (maker unknown as I borrowed it from my very good friend, Denise), Pearlescent watercolor paints, My Minds Eye dp, ribbon, rhinestones, Cuttlebug embossing folders & die~cut, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Sizzix Daisy die~cut, silk flowers and machine stitching. (Envelope is made using Priscillastyles Envelope Template Kit).

Michelle, another great card for this weeks MMSC challenge. I love how you have captured the essence of the Dragonfly. I have to tell you in my garden I have the most beautiful blue shade dragonfly I have ever seen. He lands by me while I am working and you can't help but reflect on the beauty of the world. I love your dp, embossing and flowers. Those rhinestones are fabulous. Exquisite, inspiring, phenomenal.
