CGI Color Challenge

Welcome back again......Hope you've had a crafty week!

We are into the second week of July and I'm still waiting for summers sunshine to stay awhile here in Alaska when the dragonflies come out to's not been getting above 65 degree's. Aw yes I guess I should be grateful that it's not in the triple digits where some folks are sweltering in that heat!  

Come And Get It has a color theme this week for you to try out, the colors samples are below.
 The Design Team has again pulled out all the stops for some fabulous card creations and this week we are being sponsored by Fred, She Said.........come on by and check out the fabulous samples!

Using Dragonfly flower Doodledallion Digi Set from Fred, She Said Designs

I've used Soft Suede as my other neutral color, embossed it as well as distressing the edges and hanging a Wish Tag..... hopefully this will make a nice birthday card for someone.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 161 was used for creating my card

 Had to get a side view to show you that the flower has 3 layers to it with the dragonfly on top, love how their wings have the iridescent sheen in the summer sunshine
