Dragonflies and Roses...

There is lots of new things in the Butterbee Scrap shop and 
this beautiful dragonfly really caught my eye and i found a 
fun and easy way to decorate it with glitter and other fun things
that i had in my crafty room.  

For my necklace i used one of the brand new Bronze Dragonfly charms and
 some glitter glue and sprinkled the colors one at a time into the channels and then
let it dry.  To seal it i put a thin layer of glossy accents and let 
that dry too.  It was really easy and it went super fast.
 For it's head i added a few rhinestones and a turquoise
rhinestone to match the glitter.  And finally for the necklace i added tiny flower
shaped filigree pieces and rhinestones and attached them with
matching jump rings to the chain.  The beautiful toggle clasp is also something 
that you can get in the shop and makes it easy to put on.

Here is what i used to decorate my Dragonfly.

My next project was the easiest card i think i ever did.
I used one of the metal roses and put a layer of pink stickles
over all of it and added some more glitter on top of that and let it
dry.  Then i added a tiny pink stone in the center of it.  To
make the card just cut strips of coordinating papers and glued them and then
added ribbons and a bow.  Tuck the bronze metal leaves under
the bow and then add the pretty pink flower to finish it.

  The stamp is from one of my favorites from Quietfire Design
and they have lots of beautiful hand done calligraphy stamps
for lots of occasions.  And it's perfect on my card too.

Thanks for stopping by....
