Birthday dragonfly


Hi, I made this card to enter a new challenge my newest follower led me to, thanks Kren! It's Crafting with Dragonflies. You need to use a stamped or digi dragonfly image as a focal point on your card. If you don't have one there's a fantastic freebie image available. The DT have some amazing projects as inspiration.

I stamped and embossed the Lucy dragonfly in gold. The detail on the stamp is amazing.


I covered the stamp in kindy glitz to get a glittery effect, it looks better IRL!

Materials used: Lucys stamp; Asian set embossing folder; Memory Box label die, gold ink & embossing powder; kindyglitz; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
