It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. Since it's the fourth Wednesday of the month, it's one of our readers favorites --- ANYTHING GOES!
I chose to showcase the big beautiful dragonfly stamp in a spring themed color scheme! I used this fun Diagonal Stripe stencil along with some distress oxides to create a fun background for my main image.

What a beautiful card, I like your background, and how you used the half doily, washi, twine and sequins but the dragonfly is still the star of the show!

Gorgeous, Esther! I love the dragonfly as well as the strips of washi tape. My washi collection often gets ignored, and yet I love it so much. Really a beautiful combination of elements to create this lovely card. Thanks SO much for sharing it in our challenge, and for being our Guest Designer this month. We are so blessed to have you share your talents with us.
God bless,
