Createful Heart Meets the Outlawz Monday Greetings

WOW!  Take a couple days off from crafting and just see how far behind you get.  The Mini Challenge at the Createful Heart FB Group ends TODAY!  This adorable digi is called Dragonfly "Hi" available in the Createful Heart Etsy Shop but I was lucky enough to receive him as a freebie when joining the Group.  The artist, Mary Smith, is a member and sponsor for the Outlawz Forum so I thought it would be appropriate to combine her challenge with something on the Forum and decided on the Monday Greetings challenge that calls for embossing wet or day and at least one designer paper.  Besides cutting and embossing the image and mat with Spellbinders Labels 25 and the image was lightly inked with Tumbled Glass Distress while still in the die.  I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss and then fussy cut the leaves.  The sentiment is Cuttlebug, too.  The image is colored with Copics and the DP is from a K&Co Designer Mat Pad. Found some cute little sparkly dragonflies in my stash, too.  Phew!  Made it in time.

 You might consider joining the Createful Heart FB Group because I new mini challenge is coming up on July 24th and I hear there just might be a freebie for that one, too.  WooHoo!  Blog challenges start August 15th HERE, so stay tuned (and be sure to read the Blog Challenge rules).
