The Design Team have been busy this last month making you some 
fabulous cards for inspiration. 
Fitting for our First Challenge - you are asked to make a card with a 

Perhaps you don't have a stamp or image you can use - Hilda has thought of that and would be pleased if you used her Free Dragonfly Image

I made a few cards and couldn't decide which one I like the best 
so I am posting them all.

This is the first one...

This was a simple card using matching designer paper and popped the Glittered  
The sentiment is from Gina K Assorted Greetings and finished of with a few pearls.

My Second

I had recently purchased the embossing folder (Honeycomb) at the back from SU so was eager to try it out. 
The dragonfly stamp is an Animal Spirit Stamp and I stamped 2 images. The first one I inked before embossing and then popped the second one on top after heat embossing it. Added some twine and button. The small stamped flowers on the embossed paper is from SU Beyond the Basics and sentiment from 
Gina K's Stippled Nature.

This photo just shows the dragonfly was popped.

and last

Again I was playing with my new SU embossing folder. I inked the background from SU Vintage Vogue in  Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. The main flowers are also from the same stamp set and inked in Rich Razzleberry. I cut out a few small scraps of DP for the back of the popped centre image. The dragonfly stamp is from Hampton Art and I used a gel pen to add some sparkle. The flower centres are glittered.

Please pop over to the our other Designers 
to see what lovely cards they made for you to be inspired by.
