STAMPlorations May Theme & Sketch Challenge Reminder

Hi there crafty friends!
Just popping in with a reminder about the
(No sketch this month, but the theme is anything with wings!)
I've made another birthday card, because, we all need them! LOL!

Here's the finished inside:

I started with a grey card base and used one of the stamps from the
Mixed Media Elements set to stamp the stripes along the one edge. I cut
a piece of DP a bit shorter than the card base and stamped the Happy Birthday
sentiment from the Balloons and Banners set using my MISTI.
I cut a banner from a scrap of DP and stamped another mixed media image around
 the edges then adhered. I had some gelli prints needing some use,
 so I used one of them to cut my dragonflies from.
The larger dragonfly was die cut using the solid die from the Dragonfly Layering Dies set
and I doodled the shape with a black PITT pen. The smaller dragonfly was stamped
from the Winged Things stamp set and fussy cut. I added some shimmer to both
with a Wink of Stella pen.

Ooh! Shimmery!

The inside uses a couple more stamps from the same stamp sets.

There's still plenty of time to link up your winged thing projects at the
to seeing what you come up with!
