It's Crafting with Dragonflies 5th Birthday Celebrations

Hi and Welcome!
It's hard to believe it is 5 years since
came onto the Blog Land Scene.
I was one of the Original Designers and
honoured to be asked back again to be 
A Guest Designer - especially for this occasion.
Thank You Hilde.
We are fortunate to  have sponsors for this challenge -
Check them out below.

Here is my first card I made with an image from
one of our Sponsors Digi Stamps 4 Joy

After printing out the floral spray I decided to
get out my watercolour pencils choosing various pinky colours.
I then added some white gel pen dots around the flowers
and Gold Liquid Pearls to the centres.
This was cut with a stitched die as are the other layers.
To add interest I added a textured back with
an ARTplorations Flourish Stencil.
(A bit hard to see here)
My Birthday Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping
cut with a MFT die inked with SU Calypsol Coral.

And a second one made as a Thank You to
Hilde for inviting me to join in the Celebrations.

I made this fairly cas to focus on the lovely 
floral spray. I coloured these with pearlized paints
then cut with a MFT stitched die.
The background was embossed with an old
Cuttlebug Folder. Added some light splatters
and the centre of the flowers were also inked again with the
white uniball pen then yellow Liquid Pearls.
Sentiment is from SU.
Finished by attaching to white card base.

Here are our Generous Sponsors.


and I made another one - this time from WhoopsidaisyDesigns

and a close up of the background with embossed glitter,
glitter bodice  and Nuvo Shimmer on the tu tu.
A ballerina has to have 'bling'

You've created two great cards, Ina! Your pencil coloured flowers on the first is beautiful! I love the pretty apricot / pink shading and the simple offset panel backgrounds set it off wonderfully. Thanks so much for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday this week!

Three beautiful cards Ina. Love that pretty flower spray. Looks gorgeous on both cards. Great designs with the tilted panel and embossed backgrounds. And your pink card is so sparkly with the glitter embossed background and the sweet ballerina in her sparkly outfit. Looks like you've had lots of fun creating this cards! xx
