The Fairy's Dragonfly

     Wouldn't it be great to be a fairy with your own personal dragonfly to bring you a rose and say something warm and encouraging that you could carry in your heart all day?  I did this card for a friend of mine who's having some rough moments - just so they'll know I'm thinking of them.


     This darling image is from Sheepski Designs and I colored it with my polychromos pencils.  I added glitter to the wings of both the fairy and the dragonfly.  It's a bit hard to see but the black frame is cut with an Inside/Outside Stitched Rectangle die from Die-namics.

      The satin ribbon is from my stash, as are the purple and the turquoise CS scraps.  I found that bit of dp in one of my stacks of 'cut-once-leftovers' but it was large enough to use as background here.

     I'm enjoying my polychromos pencils more each time I use them.  I can already see that I want to add more colors but I have to find a store that carries individual colors instead of just sets.  They are expensive and then you add shipping on top of the initial price, buying in sets just isn't the most cost effective way of adding to or replacing colors.  If any of you know of such a place, please let me know.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
