"Springy" Birthday Card

I have noticed that several of the blogs I follow and on messageboards shaped cards are popular. Usually I just make the typical A2 card. For this birthday card I decided to make a shaped card. I used the dragonfly from the Paisley cart. I merged a square from Plantin Schoolbook and the shadow of the dragonfly using my Gypsy. I created a mirror image and merged the two images.

The border on the design paper is an EK Success border punch. The tiny butterflies are a Creative Memories punch with some stickles in the center. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions.
I embossed the wings of the dragonfly and added more stickles (gotta love the shimmer). I added the bow at the very last and love the way this turned out.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day :)
