Becca ... for her party! and a little Time Out!

Becca Cruger aka The Damsel of Distressed - is that clever? - is not one to worry about any ol' birthday getting her down.  No sir, she has embraced it, and thrown herself a big week-long party!!!  Now you know I couldn't resist that!

For you Becca!!!  Party on!


"Whether 21 or 72 - all you really need is LOVE on your birthday!  Okay cake and presents are good, too!"
[The leave is a newbie from Impress, stamped with their Fresh Ink - harvest.]
 
Now, since I've included that cute little dragonfly, I'm sending this one flying over to Time Out - I've so been a lax about playing there for weeks since gearing up for our vacation - where the challenge is Nature with a Side of Animals [or thankfully insects!!!]

Happy birthday, Becca!  I hope you will take the dragonfly as inspired by your cool bird ... it does fly!!

Wowee Miss Lady! If a card could get any fresher and lighter than this, I'd be hard pressed to believe it. Gorgeous creation! That dragonfly looks like he's about ready to pop right off the card and flit away. Thank you SOOOOOO MUCH!!! for celebrating with me! I've got a big ol' smile on my face. :)

This is so soft and lovely, Michele. I kept looking to see if the grey is on top or underneath. Love the delicate dragonfly.

I adore every detail on this card, Michele; in fact, this is officially my #1 favourite of yours (of course, nearly all your cards are tied for this position *grin*). The leaf, the colour combination, the dragonfly, the eye-catching design. Swoon-inducing! What's the source of the dragonfly? LOVE it!
