Bold and Bright Dragonfly Birthday Card

This week I will be featuring some of the cards that I made with my World Cardmaking Day event guests!  Most of the cards were already made and posted on my blog and Facebook page over the past couple of months.  But I did come up with a few new ones just for the occasion!  This first one was hands down the most popular card at my event.  Pretty much everyone who attended made at least one of these!  It was actually one of the more simple cards to make too!  It features a silver dragonfly, set against a background of bold blocks of color, and finished with a soft, shimmery, Pool Party ribbon and knot.  The layer behind the dragonfly was embossed using the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a little extra added detail.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

The color combo for this card was chosen from one I found on Pinterest that I’ve been wanting to try for awhile!  I added the silver myself, but here are all of the colors that were used (besides the silver):

I do tend to gravitate toward neutrals and subtles, but every once in awhile I want to experiment with other colors! I love, love , LOVE these colors together, and I love how the silver adds just a bit of contrast and shine to this card as well!

I hope you like this card as much as I do! Thanks for checking in today!
