Less is More 28...Things That Move

 I am right under the wire, but have to post this fast...we were invited to a much anticipated wedding that was supposed to have taken place tomorrow night, then moved to tomorrow morning, and will now be taking place in a couple hours due to the hurricane.  My husband and I were not going to attend if tomorrow, the wedding destination being an hour away and having to go through one of only 2 tunnels used for the whole area's evacuation...now it will be in the backyard of her parents(our dear friends)!!
  The theme at Less is More this week was to make a card with something that moves...the possibilities endless...but I guess with so many possibilities, it was difficult!  I settled on a new set(new to me) from Papertrey Ink(Springtime Doodles) and made it super simple.  I stamped dragonfly and cut with fiskars finger exacto knife(not sure what it's actually called).  I colored it with SU markers(Bermuda Bay, Taken with Teal and Close to Cocoa)...used close to cocoa paper and bermuda bay, the white is Papertrey.
So being a dragonfly, he moves and with his wings cut out, he really moves!!  Thanks for looking, hope you have a great weekend!!
