I used the Dragonfly Waterlily image for my card (you can find it in the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet HERE)...


I loved the softer coloring that I did on the image. I think paired with the bolder color papers it makes the image stand out. The photo doesn't show it well, but I added  shimmery look to the dragonfly wings by coloring them with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker after I'd colored them with my Copics.

My fancy border was created with a die from Simon Says Stamps - Thanks Scallop Border Die.


Here's the inside of my card:

love this Jeanette - the curved die cut is wonderful, and the softly coloured image really does 'pop' against the strong colours of the base.
