Dragonflies


You may remember a card on my blog a couple of weeks ago using one of the LOTV backgrounds. Well I loved it so I made another but this time using the dragonfly carte postale background. I used DI Antique Linen and just added a little colour to the flowers with Copics. A real shabby chic distressed look using my TH distress tool. The papers are Prima, dragonflies made with a Memory Box die and sanded core'dinations, the corner was made with a Marianne die. (Do you know how hard it is for me to type those two words together!)

Marianne, This is a really beautiful card. I think your shabby chic design is just perfect with the grunge look image and all the pretty details. How about... 'a die made by Marianne' instead!
