CES Challenges DT Card

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all? I have a poorly 16 year old at the mo he has a bad chest infection so he's on antibiotics as well as his inhaler cus he has asthma.......but its ok he has his xbox lol.
Anyhoos its Saturday so that means its time for a new challenge over at CES & this week is the lovely Carrie's turn to set the theme which is................
SHAPE UP............
I dont mean go out buy one of those trainy sporty bra things & start jogging........gawd no!!! We mean shaped cards.. so no square cards & no oblong cards either........bring those shapely curvy cards lol.
I have used one of the gorgeous new digi images from Crafts & Me, my regulars will know I ADORE Hannah Lynn always have done ever since I first saw them on Crafts & Me so I always get excited around the 1st of each month for their new images.

The shape I cut out using a large die on my Grand Calibur, I really need to use this more. The gorgeous dragonfly is a Memory Box die called 'Willow Dragonfly' from My Crafty Heart.

The gorgeous image is called 'Dahlia' & I coloured her with my beloved Copics. I went for bright colours which is soooooooooo unusual for me. I coloured the dragonfly wings so they were see-through & you could still see her body through the wings. I had so much fun with this I really did!!!
I used a Marianne Frame die for the mat behind the image.

Flower & card candy I got from Crafty Emma's Store which is closing down so many things are on offer.

The gorgeous paper is Prima 'Madeline' & inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.
All A4 card used is from Paper Mill Direct.

Well thats it from me thank you sooooooooooo much for stopping by, please pop by my lovely teamies to see their beautiful creations.
Hope you all have a super duper weekend, take care sweeties mmwah xoxoxo

Hello! Beautiful use of color and shading to create such a beautiful card! Love your images! I also love the die cut that you have used underneath your colorized image. The addition of the little flower and the dragonfly are good! Your die cut and layered background really accentuates your colorized image! Nicely done! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
