I too went in a different direction. I started with a base of Pure Luxury card stock in Onyx Black. My designer paper is a real oldie from Frances Meyers. It's been around for so long, that it is a sheet of 81/2x 11. Have not bought that size in years! My house Mouse stamp is called "Dragonfly-ing". The circle sentiment is from Unity. I stamped it with Versafine ink and sprinkled it with Clear Detail EP. Coloring was done with Copics, and sponging is with VersaMagic ink. The glittery gem flowers are from Jolee's, and the pearl swirls were a gift from a friend for my last birthday. They are made by Zva Creative. The dragonfly has Stickles on his wing, but it is not showing today. My inside saying is "you raise me up".
Thanks for stopping around. Sounds like our temperatures are going to be a bit milder this week, here in PA. Still have a wee bit of yard work to complete before winter. Please, no more surprise snow storms for a little while!
