Cattails & Dragonflies

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Has it been crazy hot, really early where you are? And humid, too? A walk outside around here is feeling like walking through a steam room. It's pretty bad when it feels like you're wearing the air like a wetsuit. As Dr. Suess might say...I do not like the heat. I do not like it one bit. I do not like it even one little bit.

So my card today is continuing w/ the colors from yesterday. (I DO like these colors. I do like them a lot.) And cattails & dragonflies are what you'd probably see in a hot, humid area. You can tell it's hot because of the blazing orange above the dragonflies. I die cut a stitched rectangle out of the white linen c/s then sponged on the oranges from the top down and the green/turq from the bottom up. Then I put it into my Misti, stamped the cattails & dragonflies w/ Memento, added some color w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. Just a touch of the splatter bg. was added here & there. The greeting was die cut in a double stitched circle & I sponged the outer circle w/ the same colors.
Funny thing about the bottom...I scored the top fold in the wrong place which made the front shorter & back too long. Instead of rescoring it (which would make it look funny & all), I cut off the excess on the back & added a sponged strip w/ part of the grid border on top. I guess another case of a mistake turning into an opportunity for change.

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used for the cattails & dragonflies.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
