To a wonderful friend

It's my first day at The A Blog Named Hero design team today and I'm jumping through the roof of plain excitement.

For my first card on the design team I decided to make this dragonfly friend card. I love how it turned out with the gold embossing and the stitching and the lovely colors.

I decided to only use the image edge stamps to create the water lilies and the dragonfly since I wanted to color them using my Copic markers, so I stamped it using a Versamark stamp pad and embossed it using gold embossing powder. After stamping and coloring the images I cut them from the paper using the matching frame cuts.

For the background I used patterned papers from my stash to suggest water and sky and cut them to size with a stitched rectangle die. I attatched the water lilies in layers raising the top one up using foam tape. I also glued the dragonfly using foam tape. I wanted to have the dragonfly "flying" off the page to create some extra movement in the card.

I then stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set as the images.
When all of the images and sentiment was placed I found a piece of white embroidery thread and hand stitched a flying trail from the dragonfly through the sentiment and behind the flowers.
To finish the card I glued the panel on a white card base raising it up on foam tape.

The embossing challenge is now over, but I hope you will have a look at the A Blog Named Hero blog very soon to see who the winners of all the lovely entries are.
