A Day to Remember

My husband's Name Day is September 19 and up until recently, we didn't even know he had one!  Igor was born in the Ukraine and had been told that as his name is a pagan one, he had no Saint's or Name Day to observe.  Not true:  "Igor" isn't a pagan name at all!  So we celebrated . . .

Starting with his card: I wanted to experiment with some tone-on-tone work and went to work with some soft stripes for a background.  Then as we're both admirers of dragonflies but rarely see them, I stamped and die cut one.  I found some shimmery taupe embossing powder and it worked.  Too bad Stamp La Jolla doesn't make this color anymore as I absolutely love it.  It's called "Holiday" but I really don't know why.  Anyway, it works and I'll be using it on plenty of Kraft, Tan, and other neutral projects in the future.
