Colour Challenge!!


Love this pretty colour palette for the challenge at CR84FN this week, as you know I love colour challenges so had to have a go at this one!


Lots of stamps used here and I am really pleased with the finished card, so soft and feminine.
Here is a close up of the dragonfly, as you can see I have added some shimmer to the wings.  Sorry another quick post but if you stop by tomorrow I can reveal one of the things I have been working on!!
