Stampin' Up Dragonfly Garden Happy Birthday Card

 Today's card features retiring DSP along with Stampin' Up Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set.  I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and Sunday Stampers Challenge for inspiration. 

I started with a panel of Pool Party card stock as the card base.  

I blended Pool Party ink onto a panel of Basic White just a little to give the plain front a little color.  I dry embossed the Basic White panel with Stampin' Up Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  I adhered a slim strip of Pear Pizazz card stock to the card front.  I adhered a piece of Calypso Coral patterned paper from Stampin' Up Dandy Gardens DSP to the card front.  

I punched a dragonfly from Dandy Gardens DSP.  I adhered the dragonfly to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Sweet As A Peach Stamp Set with Old Olive ink on a strip of Pear Pizazz card stock.  I flagged the end of the strip with Stampin' Up Banner Pick A Punch.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I added 3 Stampin' Up Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins to the card front.  
The inside is a panel of Basic White card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with Old Olive ink.  I adhered another punched out dragonfly.
