LOVE TO CRAFT CHALLENGE #13 ANYTHING GOES

Hello Crafty Friends,
There's a new challenge starting today at
Love To Craft Challenge Blog
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes

Here's my inspiration card for this challenge...
 Here's what I used...
 Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads 'Rich Cocoa' and 'Cottage Ivy'
Mulberry Paper and Flowers
Burlap Ribbon - Unwoven
Unbranded Clear Stamp Sentiment and Dragonfly
We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Stamping Tool
Yasutomo Niji Pearlescent Watercolor Paint
Watercolor Brush with Water Tank
Bow Making Tool
Real Leaves
Green Cardstock Paper

Here's what I did...
I made the card with green cardstock paper. Then I cut a piece of scrap mulberry paper slightly smaller than the card. The right side was already torn, which is how I wanted it on my card. My hubby brought in a few leaves from outside for me. I added ink to different leaves and stamped them on the bottom left side of the card. Then I stamped the dragonfly and sentiment onto the card using the stamping tool. Next I painted the dragonfly wings with pearlescent watercolor paint, as I wanted them to have a shimmering appearance. Then I made a bow with burlap ribbon using the bow making tool and separated the strands of the bow. I then glued the flowers and the bow on. After making the ends of the flower stems curl, I glued them coming from beneath the flowers.

And that's my DT card.
Hope you like it and it gives you some inspiration.
Hope you come join us in the fun!
