Sparkle in flight

Hi guys,

I got this die a while back (It is an X-cut one), and I decided it was about time I used it. Unfortunately it didn't get along with the big shot pro, so next time I will try it in my little big shot instead and hope it is just because the runners are so wide!

As you can see some of the parts didn't quite cut, so I decided to leave them in. I took a piece of white card and sprayed some red ink onto it, then blended it out with a make-up sponge, then I layered this behind the image. I added some red glitter glue around the wings. Finally i simply added some white pearls.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts #580 something beginning with B (Blue/Blending/Broken)
inkspirational #217 painting or colouring (I painted the background paper with ink)
AYLI - Jungle or farm - I tend to have much more choice of animals that are found in the jungle than I do on the farm. However, a dragonfly can be found in both areas, although more likely in the jungle.
AlphabetChallenge - G for Glitter and Gems
SimplyCreateToo #162 Red and White and Blue
dragonflydreams - no patterned paper

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz

  7. What a lovely card, and I think it was a good idea to leave the uncut bits in - makes it look vert artsy!
