Double D - Skies

  Dear Ones~

There's a new challenge up over at Double D and the topic is SKIES!! Here is the Mood Board for your inspiration:

And here is my card:
Sadly, this has to be a sympathy card. One which I was very sorry to have to make. I have this fabulous stencil by A Colorful Life called Realistic Clouds. I think it's aptly named, it's very fun to use.  I decided to heat emboss the greeting on some vellum this time. I love that look. The dragonfly was painted with Stampin' Up Inks. Then I added some Stickles.

The Ingredients:
GKD White and Black Onyx Card Stock
A Colorful Life Realistic Cloud Stencil
Stampin' Up Inks In:
*Seaside Spray
*Purple Posy
*Powder Pink
SU Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set
Just Rite Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments for Greeting
Trinity Stamps Bubble Blowout Baubles
Stardust Stickles
