You are an Inspiration - Dragonfly Garden & Hand Penned Petals

 Do you see the subtle sparkle on the dragonfly's wings? That's Wink of Stella, an amazing brush that delivers just a subtle glittery look that won't rub off.

I love this fun fold card!  Product List 155499 156224 141897 159276 132708 144220 119683
