It's August 1st and I'm just getting around to posting my page for the Papertrey Pages July Challenge. The challenge this month was to use Kraft (that's a no-brainer for me) and to make at least one of our own embellishments. I chose some pictures from earlier this summer for this challenge.
I started with Kraft 12x12 card stock from Stampin' Up. I added a woodgrain border using PTI's Woodgrain background set and Dark Chocolate ink. On the rest of the page, I added a background using the ferns and dragonflies from SU's Organic Grace set. I love those images and hardly ever use them. They were perfect for this page. I also used the same set to create my embellishments. I stamped the dragonfly image, and glittered him up with some Glimmer Mist. I punched the flower layers from Chocolate Remix patterned paper (PTI) and Dark Chocolate and New Leaf card stock. I added more of the Woodgrain background pattern to the New Leaf card stock center. I popped the dragonfly up with a dimensional (SU).
