bitten by the bug dragonfly challenge

happy monday! ready for some BBTB inspiration hope im helpful there for ya.. but if you want your sockies kocked off   be sure to go on over to the BBTB blog  when youre done here and check out the awesome creations by the other DT ladies then pick up your camp out cart and create a beautiful dragonfly card along with us :)    the dragonfly needs to be blue and some use of polk dot paper also is in this recipe.   at the end of the month (27th)  were doing another blog hop so for everyone who joins in each week i'll add your name twice to my contest. ( ill be sure to check for the entire month of september on the BBTB blog)

for this card i used the dragonflies from camp out, cutting out the extra wing layer in vellum attached them then added some bluish stickles.i put some little pop dots under thier bodies and stuck them where they landed.  the iris is a SU stamp i used prismas and mineral spirits ( sorry for all you that like this technique..   but  really  i prefer watercolor or better yet my colorbox fluid chalk pads) i  stamped this then stamped again and cut out just the flower adhered with a pop dot underneath then added aileens paper glaze.
i also used my jasmine cart for the corners on the iris panel. the larger corners are sizzix. and inked some with colorbox fluid chalkpads.
the wonderful quote is computer generated and  is from ralph waldo emmerson.
thanks so much for looking :) have a fantastic day :) shelly
