Butterflies and Dragonflies


Well another busy week has passed! Had a great time and a new market on Saturday and sold quite a few cards and jewellery. I've been so busy making the last week I haven't had time for many challenges! Anyway back to normal now...
I created this card using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on watercolour card for the background. I then stamped a variety of foliage onto the bottom half of the card. I stamped the butterflies and dragonflies and highlighted them with glitter glue. I love the shimmery effect the mists have given, although I'm not sure this photo gives the best impression?

I'm entering the following challenges with this one :

The Stampman - Butterflies and Dragonflies
Blogger's Challenge - Things with wings
Simply Create - Fly with me
