When Angels Are Near

Today I'd like to share the card I made using one of Graciellie Digital Designs.  This image is from her Hope & Strength package. 

Isn't that image just stunning!

To make this card, I started by enlarging the dragonfly image and angling it so that it went off the edges of the A2 sized card front.  Then I added the sentiment  on the left side and printed it.  I colored the dragonfly with my Copic markers and used a single stitched die around the edge.  I had the yellow border in my bits and pieces (Don't you have things like that too?) which coordinated well with the shades of blue.  I found a blue patterned paper for the mat and combined the layers to make the card.  Lastly I added three enameled dots randomly around the dragonfly. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
