Dragonfly card and draw winner!

Tuesday...finally!  Sometimes Mondays can be so Monday-ish.  :)
Butterflies/Dragonflies set of 7 stamps
Popping in today to share a dragonfly card using Sizzix' Layered Dragonfly and Quietfire's Dragonfly stamp (from the set above).  The dragonfly took several steps to make but it was worth it.  I decided to list the steps instead of doing a paragraph:

  1. Run white paper through die. Emboss.
  2. Cut off wings (sorry Mr. Dragonfly!)
  3. Stain body using Peacock Feathers and Black soot.
  4. Apply Stickles at will.
  5. Run vellum paper through die. Emboss.
  6. Cut off wings (sorry again!). 
  7. Color back of wings using distress marker in Scattered Straw.
  8. Use distress marker in Black Soot on top of vellum wings along the veins.
  9. Apply Stickles at will.
  10. Adhere dry wings to body.  
The card base was made using distress cardstock (from my scrap stash) die cut using Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangles.  The frame was cut using Grand Rectangles.  
Quietfire's Dragonfly was stamped onto die cut paper (Spellbinders' Squares).  That fun wavy line of gems is from my hoarded clear and yellow Recollections gem pack that I have had for well over a year.  Personal questions: Why do I hold onto things after buying them?  Why am I always so weary of cutting pretty paper and special bling stickers and special ribbon?  Please tell me you do the same!
That's my card!  Hope you liked it!  Now onto the draw...

The winner of the draw is Heather Thompson!!  Woo-whooooo!  Congrats, Heather!  Could you please drop me an email with your contact info?  It is little_teapot at live dot com.
