Inspiration challenge

Good Morning! I finished this card over the weekend based upon the inspiration challenge at SCS.

This is what inspired me.I did some sponging around the perimeter of the main stamped panel using faded jeans distress ink. The dragonfly stamp is from The Stamp Doctor that I picked up just recently at the stamp and scrapbooking expo. I did add some twinkle to it with a clear spica pen, but it really does not show up in the picture. I used the grass and sentiment from Stampin Up Inspired by Nature set as it seemed to go right along with the vase above! Versamagic tea leaves ink was used for the grass.

The designer paper is from Deja Views and Paper Pizazz. The lattice border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts was used on white card stock and added down the left side of the main panel. I did use one of the label dies from Spellbinders for the sentiment - I can never remember which number it is though, 1, 2 or 3? Using a dauber, I sponged more distress ink around the edges of it and used foam tape to pop it up on the card.

Thanks for stopping by - by the way, what do you think of my interpretation?

Love this card too, the vase was a good inspiration and you did a good job matching that up with stamp choices.
