Dragonfly Smiles

I can never have enough cards in my stash to send to friends and family who are going through tough times. 
I love being able to send a smile or hug in the mail! 

I think Lg. J's Dragonfly fits the bill to bring a smile to someone - especially with those heart shaped cheeks! She definitely makes me smile!



I coloured this cutie with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge then popped her up with foam pop dots. I added some dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen and because I like a little sparkly somewhere on my cards, I added some clear sparkle pen to the hearts in the wings. 

I set her aside and die cut a cloud and grabbed my dauber and ink to create my sky background. Next I cut it to size and put it in my trusty Misti to stamp the sentiment in the perfect spot. I lightly drew the dashes with a pencil and then went over them with black marker once I was happy with their placement. Some twine and gumdrops finish off this fun, CAS style card.
