Online Card Class Week 4

Hello all,
  I guess I found the time and inspiration to make the week 4 card for the Summer Online Classes.
  Inks:  Close To My Heart: Pacifica, Lagoon, Pear and Sky
  Paper:  Close To My Heart
  Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades Regal Flourishes
  Magnolia Doohickeys: Dragonflies

  I really like the technique videos for this week.  I inked up one side of the Tim Holtz Alterations and embossed my card.  They said to ink up the "female" side:  the side where you have the indent.  The raised side they called the "male".  This technique they called "Letterpress" or "Faux Letterpress"
  After I die cut the Dragonflies, I inked them up using a sponge dauber by Tsukineko "Sue-Knee-Co".  At least this is how the Japanese at my plant told me how to pronounce it.
  I am so glad that I got to make a card this week!  I was on vacation last week so I didn't get to participate.  Boy was I bummed.  Well, this makes two posts in one day whew!  Well, I'm going to get started on cleaning up my studio!
