All of a Flutter

Emma has chosen our theme for the Polkadoodles challenge this week and it is
All Of A Flutter
We would like to see your cards and projects containing pretty things with wings.

Before I show you my card for this challenge I would like to say a big congrats to
 who was the lucky winner of my blog candy from the Polkadoodles blog hop. Hayley if you can email me I will sort out getting your candy to you. 

This week I made quite a plain card and apart from a few flowers from stash and a Martha Stewart punch everything I used came from the All Around and Everywhere CD. I slightly curled the wings of the dragonfly, then using foam pads down the centre attached it to the card. When you open the card another dragonfly "pops out" to greet you, the inner dragonfly actually hovers about 7cms away from the card, unfortunately the pics don't show it off.  

I've tried to get a couple of pics from different angles to give you some idea of how it looks.

If you fancy joining our challenge this week then head over to the challenge blog for all the details and lots of gorgeousness from my fellow teamies.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Delightful Challenges - Anything goes
Southern Girls - Anything goes
Crafting for all Seasons - #3 Summer
Bearly Mine - #12 Anything Goes 
Going Grey With Scrap-Creations - Anything Goes

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely stunning! I giggled when you said you made a "plain" card, because I think it's stunning and perfectly displayed with many elements. :)
Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us at Top Tip Tuesday and I wish you luck!

Having seen this 'plain' card and been startled by the unexpected Dragonfly inside that flew up to greet me when I opened it, I can assure you this is a fabulous pop up card. Colette you couldn't make a plain card if you tried! Brilliant as usual. xx
