A Trio of Dragonflies

Hello!  Today I have another card using the Sketch Challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I wanted to make this one with more emphasis on their theme-to use a die cut. Using black ink, I stamped  and cut three dragonflies from Ivory CS.  The stamp and die are from Creative Dies.  I added shine with Sakura Stardust Pen which I think you can see in the photo.  Following the sketch, I assembled the card with an Ivory card base and mat with papers from Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper pad. The center panel was embossed with a Darice EF. The word Thanks was cut with Cheery Lynn die twice, once in ivory and once in blue.
