PPA40- Dragonfly Blues

I found this cute clear stamp set on clearance at Target for only $6.00! It had 10 stamps that included butterflies, ladybugs and dragonflies so I just had to have it! I used the Top Note Die and cut it twice- once in Night of Navy and the other in Brocade Blue.....and thought, those dragonflies need to be drawn to a flower or a light so I used an oval cutter and cut the middle of the Brocade Blue piece and used the Finial Press Embossing folder for the Whisper White needed a little something so I sponged it with Brocade Blue Ink and that's my interpretation of the buggies flying around a light. I know they not fireflies, but just humor me!
The dies were then layered on a piece of embossed Whisper White, Brocade Blue and Night of Navy. The fireflies were stamped with Night of Navy and then embellished with some of Martha Stewart's Navy Glitter. Aren't they cute? Happy Birthday is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. Happy Stamping!
