Spring Card Swap

I couldn't sleep last night so I got to thinking about another Spring-themed card idea that I could use for my swap card for tonight and this is what I came up with. I'm happier with this card, but I'll take both cards with me and whoever gets my name can choose which card they would like to have.

For the dragonfly, I used the rock n' roll technique with Wild Wasabi first, then Blue Bayou to give a more chameleon look to the wings. I cut out all the bugs with my scissors and used dimensional squares to lift them all up off the layered squares and rectangles that were also all popped up.

I thought it'd be cute to use vellum for the wings to make them look more like bee wings. Here's an angle view to show you.I'l be back tomorrow with our projects from tongiht's crafty session. Stay tuned...
