Pollycraft Challenge #85

Hello friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We had some fantastic weather over the weekend but unfortunately, that's suppose to come to an end.  According to our local weather report, we're now looking at rain for the next few days ... instead of working on cards I guess I'd better start building an ark lol!  Anway, since I don't think you stopped by for a weather report, I'll move on to my card.

Today is Monday so that means there's another fantastic challenge over at the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  The theme this week is Swirls and Pearls and I thought the beautiful  Clover Dancing with Dragonflies would be perfect for this theme. 

I colored my image with copics and colored pencils and added some Glamour Dust to her wings, the dragonfly, and some of the flowers.  I used my embossing folder to make the swirls on my cardstock and cut out my image with my nestabilities.  I added ribbon and a bow, some pearls, and a little red flower to finish my card.

Please be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to see all the beautiful work by their DT.  I hope you find the time to play along in the challenge this week.  You can find Clover Dancing with Butterflies and all the other beautiful Pollycraft images over in the Pollycraft Shop.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
