Wonderful Wings

I was delighted to see that this week's challenge at CD Sundays  is "Wonderful wings" as it has given me a good excuse to use my very favourite theme - DRAGONFLIES. I love dragonflies, especially in crafting. I'd hate to have to add up how many dragonfly themed rubberstamps I own!

But I knew I wouldn't be stamping this week, as some of my favourite dragonfly images are on the Design House "Water's Edge" CD. This is a sister CD to the Meadow's Edge one I used a few weeks ago, that a lot of you said you'd never heard of. I think the artwork on them is truly gorgeous!

The photos don't really do it justice (my husband wasn't at work so I couldn't get him to take the photos for me on his super duper camera!) but the topper is an angled pyramid and I've added subtle glitter highlights to the dragonfly wings. Everything used on the card is from the CD.

  3. Lovely card. I have a calender here on my desk which is all dragonfly images. It was made for 2013 by an environmental group here in Cyprus. They are studying the local dragonfly population, I didn't realise there were so many species. The one for March is a Violet Dropwing.....a lovely violet colour as you'd expect. Wynn x
