It's Just Inspirational's 9th Week Already

Good morning bloggers, I hope you are all fine and dandy today.
I cant believe that the Just Inspirational Challenge blog is in its 9th week already, it doesn't seem that long ago that we were all waiting nervously for the 1st challenge to go live, but it is week 9 and the inspirational photo for you this week is

isn't that just a fab photo to use as inspiration, all those gorgeous bright colours.
Our brilliant sponsor for this weeks challenge is

and here is my make

I have used just the cutest little dragonfly digi from the limited runs digi shop and coloured him in with pro markers. The spots on his wings I first coloured all lovely bright colours and then added either stickles, liquid pearls or a sparkly paint I have. I cut round him and edged the cut out in a light grey pro marker and mounted him of foam pads. I chose a small shaped card I had in my stash as I just wanted a sweet card to give to my friend and her family to thank them all for our wonderful Christmas presents. The sentiment I made on the computer and mounted on a piece of white card I coloured with pro marker to match the colour of Mr dragonfly's wings and added a tiny blob of lilac liquid pearls to either end. Finally I edged the whole card with a yellow chalk ink pad to add a bit more colour.
Its quite a clean and simple design but with all the bright colours and different elements used on the dragonfly I didn't want to over complicate things by using a backing paper.

I hope you like my card and that you will join in the super challenge this week at Just Inspirational.

Happy Crafting
