Awesomely Artistic Dragonfly

This is for Dragonfly Journeys, color inspiration Challenge #17 to use goldenrod, turquoise, and ruby.   Difficult challenge for me as this color combination is outside my comfort zone.

Stamps:     Stampin' Up Awesomely Artistic (Dragonfly), Gorgeous Grunge (flower dot background) which was stamped in VersaMark and heat set with Crushed Curry embossing powder.

Paper:  Stampin' Up, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise and a goldenrod from my stash.

Accessories:  Stampin' Up inks in same colors as the papers; flowers were made with circle punches and tiny pearls, hand drawn stems and leaves.  Clouds were made using sponge dauber and scalloped circle punch.  Dotted lace ribbon in Delightful Dijon.  Dragonfly was stamped in Staz-On black then highlighted with the Turquoise marker, a white gelly roll pen and glazed over with Wink of Stella.
