DT post for Paper Crafting Journey: Challenge #9 - Bling it on

Hi all. How exciting is this? This is my first contribution to the  Paper Crafting Journey
blog as part of their DT.
This fortnight the Theme is : BLING
Sponsered by Limited Runs Digis
 Liminited Runs have some wonderful digi stamps available, and this one was a freebie from a while ago.
So if you go their blog you will find it their amongst other treasures.
When I look at bugs or dragonflies in particular, I just can't get past the blue and green colour combo, add lots of glitz and bling and there you have it. I used silver brads for the little flowers.I used the Daisy Martha Stewart Punch for the border, and the swirl is a Sizzix Die, and I coloured it all in with ProMarkers.I also used the damask embossing folder on the blue background.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
The Stamping Boutique #5: winged things
Party Time Tuesday # 13: Anything goes
Ambers Crafts and Stuff#7: Use a Digi
