I chose the colours for September, the transition between summer and autumn. The rich golds and burnt oranges as the leaves lose their summer colour. The dragonfly reminds me of insects that hibernate over winter, not seeing the light of day until next spring. Some have even completed their lifecycle and gently fade away.
The background paper on my card is from Magenta 2006. I love how the colours merge into one another, like a sunset sky. The accent paper is from Daisy Bucket Designs and reminds me of those fading flowers, that turn brown and die.
The centre panel was embossed on white pearlised card with the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder, then sponged with Gold Brilliance Ink. It shimmers in the low autumn sunlight providing that glimer of soft sunshine you see through the trees.
The dragonfly is from a rubber stamp by Judikins coloured with H2o's, again giving that soft shimmery look. The card was finished off with a couple of gold peel-off's and Prima flowers with a sparkling amber gem in the centre. Hope you like it as much as I do.
