The current ODBD challenge is "anything goes (with ODBD stamps).
This was made for Jeanne's MIX48 challenge; the circle and square are obvious, I also have sponged triangles round the edge of the circle, and the triangular shape created by the dragonfly, circle and square elements, plus the triangle-based Cuttlebug corners.
For the F4A revisiting this year, rather than choosing a favourite I chose one of the many I missed out on this year - F4A186 ~ Nothing Gold Can Stay.
And I finally got to use this leaf which I made for IC418, inspired by THIS paper from Hollanders.
Base is some DCWV woodgrain paper coated with gesso, embossed with different embossing folders, sponged, and edged with Versamark and gold EP.
The gessoed book page was on my desk and in the pile of scraps I set aside during a major tidy last night. I cut it to a square and sponged the edges.
Sentiment stamped on a circle, sponged and stencilled and layered onto an embossed circle - another from my pile of scraps.
I can't remember all the details of the leaf, but it was white card coloured with distress inks, gessoed, stencilled with the leaves in paint and inks. Today I embossed it, edged it with a gold pen and coated it with UTEE.
So - a good clearance of several scraps from my desk :D. And I found the dragonfly on the floor when I was looking for a lost stamp.

WOW, that poem - Nothing Gold can Stay by Robert Frost goes perfectly with that scripture verse. That Bible verse is as good as can be at explaining our losses. I lost my favorite dog of all times on Dec. 11th. I always try to remember that verse as God's explanation. My little boy was like gold to me too. Maybe I valued him too much. I am thankful that God let me have him. Thank you for your card and posting it. It helped to further me on my path.

I love this card! It is amazing and what a wonderful use for all those "scraps"! Amazing what we find when we clean up isn't it?! You've done such a wonderful job - I love all the details and embossing and that verse just fits so nicely with the card. Fantastic!
