Dragonfly Birthday Wishes

I really like the way this card ended up looking.

I started with PTI's rustic cream (of course. i'm obsessed) and embossed PTI's background text stamp with ZING powder (my friend Christy gave me this awesome suggestion and I love her for it!!).
Then, I took my Hero Arts stamp that my other awesome friend, Terry, gave to me (it's just so beautiful). I stamped it in CTMH Poppy ink and exacto knife-d (i don't think that is a real word) the inner boxes. The squares were about an 1, so I punched out 1" boxes from some other paper I had on hand (sorry, don't remember what it was) and glued it to the back of the dragonflies. I took more of the rustic cream and stamped PTI's butterfly sentiment on there. Then I stickled and voila! My boss just loved this card - I gave it to her for her big 50th birthday (there were about 30 of us from work that all went out to Carabbas...it was super fun!) Next time, I'm getting the Lobster Ravioli. MMMM!
