Sugar Nellie B-day Card & Dutch Dare Card Challenge

My mother-in-law's birthday is coming up so I spent last night working on this card! I really love the new Sweet Ebony (from Sugar Nellie) stamps that have just come out. This is my first time using this one and it's super adorable. I've coloured it using TH distress inks which I still really love. At some point I need to try copics but for now I'll stick to the inks! I started with a SCS sketch(#187) as a guide and then changed it around! I added the dragonflies from Magnolia because the card needed something more. I tried adding some flowers but I just don't have the right colours right now! You can't tell but I popped the dragonflies so they stand out more. I'm also submitting this for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge which this week is to make a card for a girl! I can't think of stamps any more girlie that Sweet Ebony! Thanks for stopping by - I love reading all your comments!
