Dragonfly box

try a new technique-Fussy and Fancy
anything but a card-Stamp, Scrap and Doodle 

Has anything unusual ever inspired you? Thats what inspired how I stamped this dragonfly. I kept seeing the Macys commercials with the star that you click your smart phone on and how it had all the writing in the shape of the star. So I kept picturing stamping onto on of my stencils. So I took this little row of flowers stamp and used my chipped sapphire distress ink and just kept stamping till I covered the stencil inside with these flowers. Then I did a  rough cut around it and inked  the edges. I put it on top of this box made with this wonderful thick glossy cardstock. I added some white ribbon with a little heart jewel. Then I added all these fabulous prima flowers in blue and white (thank you so much Marlene), so it looked like it landed in a field of flowers. I needed a box to put the bracelet in that I am giving my niece for her 16th birthday.
