FMS 239 and PPA 303

It's a long weekend here, Queen's Birthday celebration. It's not turned out quite as expected between heavy frosts and my husband managing to break his ankle. But eventually, I managed to get into my craft room and recover some of my equanimity.

For inspiration, I've used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the really lovely colour palette at Pals Paper Arts.

Awesomely Artist is such a lovely set and in celebration of it being in the new catalogue, I got it out for this card. The panel is sponged with Mint Macaron in the centre and Night of Navy around the edges. The dragonfly is stamped in Night of Navy on Night of Navy. The Mint Macaron dragonfly has a coat of clear Wink of Stella and some pearls and a Night of Navy shadow dragonfly under her.

Update: Utterly delighted to be a Perfect Princess at Freshly Made Sketches

Card: Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Mint Macaron
Stamps: Awesomely Artistic
Inks: Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron
Other: dimensionals, sponges, Wink of Stella (Clear), pearls.
