Dragonfly flight

I did the inspiration challenge over on SCS {IC129).  I knew I wanted to use my new Unity Stamps I just got in the mail, so I chose the dragonfly.  These are really big stamps, so if you order them...they seriously are big.  I was fiddling with the sketch a lot before I produced this.  It just looked so much better as a one layer card.  To give it dimmesion and texture, I used the cat tails and grass from PapertreyInk's Pond Life stamp set, the sentiment is from the same set. I really cannot do a card with out ribbon I don't think, so since this is going to a man, I used the hemp twine, which made me feel better >"<.  
The card is going to one of our friends who just finished flight school, so the sentiment is really perfect in this case. 
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Materials used:
River Rock card stock, hemp twine, copic pens, tim holtz black soot ink, spring moss ink, chocolate chip ink, Unity Stamps, Papertrey Ink stamps
