Tosha Inspired

Tosha did a card you can find it here . I liked the layout and needed a masculine card.  Here is what I came up with.

All papers are from My Mind's Eye Paris &co. paper pad, except for the green dotted piece, and that was in my pile of scraps so not sure who that is from.  All the pieces were layered onto craft cardstock.

The sentiment piece was cut out using the Spellbinder Labels Seven die.
Studio G sentiment stamp on top of an Inkadinkado leaf flourish, inked around the edges.

The dragonfly stamp is from Purple Daisy Designs and I used the EK success punch to punch it out.
Patina Stickles were added to the wings and the dragonfly is on foam adhesive.

My daughter is coming today and will stay the weekend while her hubby goes out of town for a wedding, our last girl time together before her move to Boston.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

This is fabulous Connie!! I love the silhouette behind the sentiment, and the papers are fantastic!! LOVE the greens and that dragonfly is so fun!! Thanks for the link too. :) My son just moved out of state yesterday too. It's so hard when they move away, but when they're happy, it makes it bearable!! I wish all the best for you and your daughter!! {{HUGS}}

I really need to make some masculine cards. It's so hard to get away from the pretty, feminine cards. I do like this one a lot!
