SSS Wednesday Challenge, Fusion and Stamplorations April

I wanted to pop in and post a card I made that just happened to fit a couple challenges currently.  I first saw the Fusion challenge sketch, and this card just "popped" into my head -- that NEVER happens!  It did end up morphing a bit but I like it in the end.


I started with a scrap of Ranger embossed white cs that I've had in my scrap bin for some time.  From this, I added the white embossed flower , then colored using my Peerless watercolors and die cut it out adding a layer of foam underneath.  I then die cut the layered dragonfly, and made it a bit dimensional with foam tape and balled up glue dots.  Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment, and embossed it with silver ep.  Then looking at it, I decided it needed a bit more to the plain white (I know, some of you are hating me for this) but it just looked to plain.  So I splattered some of the peerless carefully avoiding what I had already done.  Here's a close up...


This will go to my mom for her Birthday, which is right after Mother's Day!
