Cattails & DragonFly friend Card

Created this card with a Cattails/DragonFly scene.

Used Tim Holtz embossing folders. Used TH sander & paper distresser. Used TH Distress Ink. Used TH die for 'friend' sentiment; cut the 's' off of 'friends.'

Used Spellbinder DragonFly die. Paper pieced the Kraft DragonFly body onto the vellum wings. Used a Stampin' Up oval punch to add wobble to for DragonFly action. Very carefully used Enamel accents black for DragonFly eyes.

Used Glossy accents on DragonFly wings & to attach the 'friend' sentiment. The Glossy accents with baby bottle nipple on is still working great. 

Added TH jute string.
