Project: Love bug dragonfly sketch card

The sketch this week at CAS(E) This Sketch caught my eye and I spent a ridiculous amount of time going through my craft stash finding the right combo of papers and objects for my layout. Honestly, sometimes the brain is just too full of ideas!

I wanted something that would be fun and modern, feminine but not too girly. I decided a dragonfly was the perfect object for the central feature and I die cut it using a great mustard color stock. It's actually two dies - sometimes I do contrasting colors but since I knew I'd be adding busy papers I went for both layers in the same color just for texture. The papers are from a little 4x4 paper set I was given and it's great because being the same set the turquoise colors are exactly the same.

The sentiment is from a little insect set I bought in a sale years and years ago - it's such a sweet little greeting that I thought it was perfect for the finished piece. Very happy with this layout, I may just use it as inspiration for a few more cards...


  1. I love your take on the sketch - what a great mix of patterned papers! <3

  2. This is awesome. I love the matchy match papers and the mustard Dragonfly (where did he come from?!), superb interpretation of the sketch. Cx
