Dragonfly

The challenge at CASual Fridays this week is:

CFC64: Clean And Simple projects featuring things you'd see in the sky

so I thought I would make a card with a dragonfly, using the colour scheme from Play Date Cafe challenge #143.


Cherry...Mint Julep...Jade

I decided to use my Cuttlebug dragonfly die and embossing set, and started trawling the internet for some inspiration.  That's when I discovered that my dragonfly set is actually a build-a-flower set.  Well, there you go!  Undaunted by this minor technicality, I made my dragonfly.




I made the red dots with a Dotta-Riffic marker pen from Zig, using less and less pressure as I worked down the tail.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts CL139 Birthday Messages.
