I ordered a beautiful dragonfly die a few months back and the poor thing hasn't been used yet. I was thrilled when I saw the dragonfly challenge at Fusion that included a lovely graphic.
The dragonfly and the holographic paper was released from Simon Says a few releases ago. I used it to justify buying a big leaf die that I'd had on my wishlist forever thinking he could sit on it (funny how that works!!. But the lovely graphic from Fusion sent me in a different direction so that leaf die will just have to wait. I don't have any dies with that specific look but I found some flowers with the general shape and I used Distress Oxides to give them the colors. I had that fun attached label in my not-yet-used collection specifically for bouquets of those flowers.
Everything has a bit of dimension. Often when a card seems a bit blah - after I add dimension, it is just right!
Thank you to the Fusion challenge for the inspiration.
