A Sparkly Birthday

I made this card using the dragonfly image from Daisy Doodles. The base of the card is pink cardstock backed in red cardstock. I added red stickles to the red cardstock. I used a white sparkly square die cut and added the birthday sentiment cut out just a little smaller than the opening and backed it in red cardstock and added red stickles to the red cardstock. I added red gemstones to the top right corner and bottom left corner of the square. I added a dark pink paper flower and a lighter pink paper flower to the bottom left corner. I added a red and white sparkly heart button to the center of the flower. I added crystal stickles to the edges of the flower. I colored the dragonfly using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added red stickles to the dragonfly where I had colored it red and then added crystal stickles to the rest of the dragonfly where I had colored it in pink and white. I finished off the card by adding red gemstones to the upper left corner.
