Dragonfly Dreams

Good morning 🙂  This card is my mid-challenge inspiration for the special month long challenge over at Creative Fingers Challenges.  We are being sponsored by the absolutely FABULOUS Christine Karron 🙂  She has given us 2 packs for the DTs to choose images from, and the lucky winner gets their choice of one of the packs (unless they use a Christine Karron image in their project….then they get BOTH).  Her images are incredibly stunning, and most are available in both greyscale and line art versions.  I’ve used the lineart of the Dragonfly Fairy, available both individually, and as part of a set. I colored her with Copics, trying to give her a glow……

With such a striking image, I wanted to keep it rather simple again….and went with plain black CS, that I stamped and heat embossed little dragonflies onto.  The inside of the card, that shows through, thanks to the design, has a strip of shimmery green CS, that I stamped and embossed the sentiment on.

I’m thrilled with the outcome, seeing as how I started with an image that was about 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″, I think I still managed to keep it the focal point of the card 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
