Father's Day dragonfly


 Happy middle of the week!  I created a card with inspiration from Michele, this week's Muse. See her beautiful card to the left for Muse #117.
As I am making lots of Father's Day cards for the CoOp, I took inspiration from Michele's sketch, but used it sideways.  I made my own template for the rectangular windows as I do not have a fancy multiple window die and I think it worked out pretty ok.  I used the dragonfly stamp from PTI Masculine Motifs and stamped in colours to match my vintage Basic Grey strip of stripes.  I only had one 6 X 6 sheet of this but I was able to make eight cards.  I also applied clear WOS to the wings, but it does not show on screen.  The sentiment is from the same set and fit just right in between the windows :)
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
