Courage, strength and happiness

In Japan dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness which makes this sentiment just perfect with this dragonfly. I stamped my dragonfly with Ranger Archival Cobalt ink then colored the spots with a Sakura Gelly Roll in clear star for an added oomph!

This dragonfly is part of the Inkadinkadoo set called Patterned Bugs, which I stumbled on at our local Ollies. The best part was the Ollies price of $1.29 for the entire set filled with ants, butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs, and a few other cuties. I just love a good bargain!

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card Michelle. I didn't know that about dragonflies! AND it sounds like you got a very good deal on those stamps. WOW.
