Less is More - Something Shiny

This week's challenge at Less is More  is "Something Shiny" - the perfect opportunity for me to indulge my love of dragonflies. I think the almost metallic flash as one darts by is one of nature's most beautiful treats, and a quick rummage through my craft stash will show you dragonflies in all kinds of shapes, styles and sizes.

In keeping with the "Less is More" theme, I chose one of my tiny metallic dragonfly brads for this card,   adding a little more shine with matching gems and metallic card, and using one of my old favourite embossing folders.
