Dragonfly in Flight

Hi - welcome to my blog - all things flighty... butterflies, Dragonflies, Birds - I enjoy using them all in my creations.
I am truly inspired by my sister at CathysCardSpot - she is the butterfly Queen for me... using butterflies and dragonflies in her elegant and CAS creations.
I am also inspired by the number of people using vellum lately or pergamano[?] cards.

Take a dark purple base card, cover with vellum sprinkled with silver Dragobflies. Hold that vellum in place with a dragonfly brad in each corner. Stamp white card with the main dragonfly using stazon and glitter embossing pdr,[if you look closely you will see the dragonfly is made up of 3 birds together] then colour with heavenly & sweet thistle H20's. Punch vellum flowers & using a Marianne design die cut 1 stem - colour with guatemalan & playful peony H20's, stick clear crystal bling on the flower centres andon the main dragonfly. Finally use a silver sticker sentiment ...
I am entering into the following challenges with this creation:
Crafting with Dragonflies has their very 1st challenge where dragonfly must be the main feature
Simon Says Stamp & Show has an Inspired challenge - mention who or what inspired your creation
Simon Says Stamp has a Things with Wings challenge this week
Thanks for stopping by... Mxx
