Use a Dragonfly - Anything but a card - Crafting with Dragonflies

Hi all,

It's that time again... a new challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies and this one is twofold... First of all, we'd love for you to make something that's not a card, and second, we'd love to see a dragonfly on your creation!

I decided to have a play with a little chest of drawers. (I really mean little, it's a 10cm, or thereabouts, cube!

I used LOTV paper, gorgeous purple paint and some shimmery dragonfly die-cuts.

I also raided my WOC flowers and Hobby House gem swirls, and even managed to find a teeny dragonfly charm in my stash...

And a close-up of the dragonfly. I opted for purple with a lovely shimmery paper underneath:

Your turn. Make, alter or otherwise create something to share with us, and don't forget the dragonfly! If you're stuck for ideas, my fellow Dragonflies have some gorgeous creations waiting for you!

I'd very much like to enter this into the current Party Time Tuesdays "Anything goes" challenge. (PTT187)

Have a fab day!
