CASEing Kisa (FS122)

Today's Featured Stamper was Kisamari. I can't believe I've never been in her gallery. It's extensive and she has so many beautiful creations! I wanted to make a card for a friend who likes dragonflies. I bought these pearl dragonflies at the Dollar Store a while back. I think they are supposed to be sewn onto clothing, but I thought they'd work on cards too.

Here's a close-up of the dragonfly. It's amazing what you can find in the Dollar Store! I think I had a beaded sweater when I was a teenager that had a butterfly or something on it. This reminds me of that.

At the right is Kisa's card that inspired me. I think hers was for a Color Challenge. She did such a beautiful job on hers. I'm too shaky today to do much good, but I tried. I went with just the black and white and used less layers. I also changed from brads to pearls and used a different stamp set. She made such a lovely card, and it was very inspiring! Thanks for visiting my blog today!!!
