ASFOS / Belli / DT / TPE

I didn't do much crafting yesterday and didn't have a card ready to schedule for this morning.  I had a mountain of ironing to do before it engulfed me when I opened the cupboard!  It's half done and once I'm finished posting this I'm off to do the other half - do I get a gold star?

I'm entering this card for the Digi Tuesday challenge even though my dear Mum is no longer with us.  She would have loved seeing all my creations and I know she would have been delighted with this card.

Challenges :
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Distress Inks, Pearl and Glitter
Creative Belli - Butterflies or Dragonflies
Digital Tuesday - A Card for Mum

Elements :
Floral BP - Hydrangea Bouquet by K&Co
Other BP - ???
Sentiment - from a set of 4 Round Greetings by Cuddly Buddly
Image - Dragonflies
Edge - Scalloped Dots punch by Martha Stewart
Pearls - Kanban
Other bits and bobs from stash

The image was coloured using Milled Lavender, Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap Distress Inks by Tim Holtz and #177 pen by Tombow.  The dragonfly wings were glittered with Star Dust Stickles.  The edge of the image was torn and I used Tea Dye Distress Ink on the edge.

Such a lovely, gentle card Anne.
I HATE ironing (don't often do it anymore!) so I think you deserve an award, let alone a gold star sweetie.
