Green Dragonfly - #104 Simply Create Too

For Simply Create Too's challenge this month - #104 Use Green Only, I created this simple card. I love my brusho backgrounds at the moment so decided to make one for my green only DT make. I used leaf green and sea green and spritzed with water, I love the result! After it had dried I used an edge'ables die for my sentiment. My die cutter has been a little neglected since I got my cameo so I had to blow off the dust first!

I cut my dragonfly on green glittered cardstock and added my gems to the bottom corner. I wanted to give effect of the dragonfly moving so I added a crystal swirl to finish it off.

I hope you like my card! Pop over to Simply Create Too to see the other DT makes and join in the challenge yourself!

Embellishments - say it in crystals swirl & gems
Sentiment - Crafters Companion Edge'ables
Image - Tonic Dragonfly Brooch
