Pink and sparkly dragonflies

It was my friend’s Birthday recently and she is a HUGE fan of everything pink and sparkly. Those who know me will realise that is not like me at all!

I merged Touches of Texture, Dragonfly Dreams and LOTS of pink and sparkle to make her card.

Using various different pinks of Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Berry Burst I began my pink and sparkly mission!

Touches of Texture creates the background with small dragonflies over the top.

The feature dragonfly is cut out with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits and a liberal coat of Wink of Stella adds shimmer. Each background butterfly also has Wink of Stella on the wings.

Finally, more pink and sparkle joins the project in the sentiment and rhinestones.

This project pushed me right outside my comfort zone as I really don’t like pink. But, I reminded myself that I wasn’t making the project for me, I was making it for my friend and thought about what she liked instead.

Take time to push yourself out of your own comfort zone. If you don’t like random, grunge, precise, certain colours, techniques etc, take time to try it and think about someone who could be the happy recipient of your finished project.

Happy crafting
