Nature's Nest - CCMC 128

I came across this week's color challenge for Creating with Connie and  Mary (CCMC128) and decided to use these colors for my Thinking of You Card.
The dragonfly from the Nature's Nest stamp set became the focal point of my card.  It was stamped in Old Olive ink and accented with some Champagne mist to provide a touch of glimmer to the wings and  body.
I used the grass from Inspired by Nature to provide some background for the card base.  It was stamped with VersaMark ink.


Above is a  close-up of the dragonfly and the  glimmer brad.  The card was also sponged with Old Olive ink. and a bit of Always Artichoke ink, and some dots were stamped with the Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp set (retired).

The dragonfly theme was carried through to the inside with more stamping, sponging and dots.
I am pleased with the way card turned out, especially since this color challenge combo was not one I would have selected by myself!

Hi Diane...the link on Create with Connie and Mary doesn't work to your card (takes me to Blogger sign-in), but I tracked you down! Your card really works with the colors! Thanks for playing along with us this week!
