This one sold as well...

Hello sweet bloggers,

First of all, I am sorry that I have not been around much. We were away at the weekend to a special friend's 40th birthday. It was loads of fun, laughter, champagne and good company all the way!!!

The card that I am posting is the one that was randomly picked up by the same lady who ordered 20 cards. Incidentally, she was kind enough to buy 26 cards in all and was I on cloud nine! So far I have sold 43 cards for Japan red cross...




Supplies:
Base card stock - white distressed with Tim Holtz wild honey and crushed olive
Embossing on card stock - CB
Stamped background - Hero Arts block done with Tim Holtz rusty hinge
Dragonfly - Inkadinkado stamp heat embossed with matt gold 
Distress around dragonfly - crushed olive and rusty hinge
Gold flowers - punched with Carla craft out of a very fancy brochure and that means I recycled!
Brown leaves - embossed and decorated with Sakura gold pen

I am going to submit this card for the following challenges:

I will come and do my rounds soon - that is a promise.

Hugs,

Monica

MOnica looks like a spectacular card the gold looks good. But do take the photo in better lighting or a white background- will show up the lovely colors on the card better.

Love

Hi Monica! Another lovely card! I absolutely LOVE what you did with the flowers and leaves! So clever, economical and Green! :) I was recently in Las Vegas, Nevada and I saw my very first real life dragonfly. Well, I have to say I do much prefer the ones we put on the cards. It was hugh and a little scary! lol Yours is beautiful!

I love the stamp background. At first I thought it was an embossing folder but as I read on it was a stamp. You did great with the stamp. Love the color combinations.
