Live The Life You Want

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your week is starting off wonderfully! I have a card to enter into a couple of challenges today :)
For this card, I used the Tim Holtz Floral Frames embossing folder and then sanded the raised image. I then brushed red chalk over it to show the texture. I cut the dragonfly from Picturesque and used Terrifically Tacky tape on the wings and then adhered glass microbeads. I also spritzed the orange paper with shimmer spray in sparkle so it really glitters. It is overcast here today so I couldn't get a really good picture of all the sparkle.
  • K & Company Que Sera Sera Paper - card base
  • Core'dinations Roy G Biv - orange paper
  • Picturesque - Dragonfly at 2 1/2"

I am entering the card in the following challenges:

Hi Lisa, I hope you are having a great day. This is just beautiful. The micro beads are just the perfect touch to the dragonfly. And I have not seen that Tim Holtz folder before. But I must get it after seeing your beautiful card.
