My Card was made using a using a Stamabilities fragile beauty. As much as flowers are a part of spring so are insects. I love dragonflies, their shimmery color and how they flit and hover make them so so interesting. I stamped the image then stamped again on vellum and cut out the wings and attached them. I watercolored and also used some pearls on them for shimmer. I used a nestie #10 for the image. The next layer was a nestie #1 which I dotted stickles around the edge. Each layer is foam dotted up. I cut and watercolored some leaves and tucked between the layers. I used My Minds Eye papers out of my stash. I distressed edges and stitched the stripe pieces. I also used a flourish stamp for the corner and then aged all around the creme with a bluegreen. I drew a dragonfly in the upper corner and used some stickles on it also. I had some nifty fiber in my stash so attached it also.

Davi, This is so sweet and very lovely. I too like dragon flies. The soft colors and swirling wisps of plant and flourish, all blend together to make a mystical world for your lovely dragonflies. The GG (grand girls) and I are watching a Strawberry Shortcake movie I gave them for their BD's. Your email arrived this AM all scrambled and looking like Russian. I thought you ought to know. The header was in English, but the message was weird. Not sure if it is you or me. I will call later. Love, Martha
