Awesomely Artistic Fancy Fold Card

Hello! Today I'm back sharing one of my favorite stamp set from the new Stampin' Up catalog: Awesomely Artistic. It's a beautiful set that includes a dragonfly and the flowers you see below...
To make the fancy fold card you see here, I used SU's new Bohemian Rhapsody designer paper, the gold twine, along with gold and turquoise sequins. I will be posting the directions tomorrow, along with a new dragonfly card,  so be sure to stop by!
Here is a closeup of the dragonfly and the thin gold twine. I stamped the dragonfly twice - once on white and cut him completely out, and once on vellum, but I only cut the wings out of the vellum. I embossed both using gold embossing powder to give it some shine. These colors of Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, and Delightful Dijon come together beautifully, don't you think?

This card was inspired by the following challenges as well:
SUO Designer Paper Challenge
Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge seen here.

Have a great week! Stay cool!
