I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
I colored the image with Copics, added Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent Glitter in Baby's Breath to the flower, Baby's Breath and Bonnie Blue to the distressed paper edges and Mellow Yellow Glitter to the dragonflies. I die cut the dragonfly using the coordinating HCD1-770 Enchanted Dragonflies Die and added it to the card.
Have a great day!
