Dragonfly Dreams

Good evening!  What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?  It's been unseasonably warm here in Michigan.  Don't get me wrong- it's still cold and gray BUT we have no snow and the temps have been pretty much well above average for this time of year.  I guess I can't complain!

Since we've had no snow since pretty much before Christmas I've been in the mood to play with springtime stamps!  The Dragonfly Dreams photopolymer set fits this bill perfectly!  
Gotta love a clean and simple card!

To create the pretty flower- I inked the "dragonfly wings" stamp in Pool Party and stamped it several times in a circle.  I then inked up my Aqua Painter with a little bit of Crushed Curry re-inker and colored in the center of the flower as well as the bumble bee.  The bee's wings were painted with clear Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle.  
What do you think?  Do you think that the dragonfly wings make a good flower?  I also think that the dragonfly body would make a great flower stem however for this card I just wanted the top of the flower instead of a flower with a stem.

Thanks for stopping by!
