Dragonfly Dreams is one of the sets which spoke my name when I first opened up the 2017 Occasions Catalog. A lover of art nouveau, dragonflies have always been one of my favorite images. And what better sketch to show off this winged beauty than Jen Mitchell’s classic sketch for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #268. Enjoy today’s card.
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This card measure 5-1/4″ square when folded.
Every card deserves a good foundation, and Jen’s sketch provides just that. I used patterns from the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper Collection, matted onto Gold Foil. The colors of these papers are so soft and subtle. The Gold Foil adds just the perfect touch of elegance.
The Soft Suede Dragonfly was popped on top of a Gold Foil specimen, which had been created with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. Of course, every dragonfly deserves Pearls, so I added a few on the tail.
Metallic Gold Thread and Gold 1/4″ Natural Trim ribbon complete the look.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I am so in love with this sketch. I used it for my previous card, and I am sure that I will use it again. And how about this dragonfly! I did have a little help with today’s design. Or maybe it was a hindrance more than a help. How could I resist this face? He could not wait for me to finish up and go play with him.
As always, if you ever have any questions about the cards I create, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
