Can You Handle the Pressure...Things with Wings

Good morning everyone and welcome. I have really been enjoying the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge so I'm back to share another card made using an embossing folder and this time there is a twist to the challenge ... Things with Wings!  Those of you who know me, know I love birds but I also have a thing for dragonflies.  This little dragonfly is stealing the show this morning.  

The embossing folder is from Crafters Companion and it's called Pretty Florals.  I think it is quite elegant!  The sweet little dragonfly is from Heartfelt Creations and it's made by stamping once onto Vellum and once onto cardstock and embossing in gold embossing powder then coloring with inks.  I used Archival Inks Cactus Flower and Forget me Not.  It looks like it might just fly off my card!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!  Head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure blog and check out the challenge.  Come play along.  It's lots of fun!
