Three lucky winners will be selected in a random drawing. 

The winners will be announced on Friday, May 18th on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and Facebook page.

Here are the directions for creating my card.

Step 1.  Create the background.  Add a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the top of white card stock 6 inches square.  Use the Flowers and Lace die set and die cut the frame.  Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter will be added to the top of this die cut.  Leave the adhesive sheet on this die cut piece.

 Step 2.  Cover a piece of white card stock, 6 inches square, with Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Peel off adhesive covering and attach the Flowers & Lace die cut piece on top. Insert the center  piece leaving on the adhesive covering.  The only sticky parts should be the flower die cut openings of the frame.  Sprinkle on the Rose Red glitter from the Bloom glitter set, adding glitter to all the design.  Rub the glitter in well with fingers, then use brush and/or Swifter cloth and clean off all stray glitter.  

Step 3.  Being sure all lose Rose Red Glitter if cleaned off work area, peel off the adhesive covering on both the die cut frame and the center piece of the frame.  Pour Cool Diamond Silk Microfine glitter over the entire front of the card.  The Cool Diamond Glitter will not stick to the Rose Red Glitter if it was rubbed in well.  Rub Cool Diamond Glitter in well with fingers and brush off excess.  Trim edges of frame as needed to fit front of 6 inch square card.

Step 4.  Use a piece of white card stock, covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive,  large enough to die cut three dragonflies. Die cut the three dragonflies of choice.   Sprinkle on Lilac, Periwinkle and Sea Foam Silk Microfine glitter, using a spoon to layer the glitters.  The Lilac and Periwinkle glitters are in the Bloom glitter set.

Step 5.  Use the Garden Notes Blue Bonnet/Lupine die set and create one pink flower.  Use the Flower Tool Kit and Kids Choice glue for shaping and assembly.  

Step 6.  Use the Garden Notes Dahlia die set and create one flower.

Step 7.  Use the Garden Notes Chrysanthemum die set and create one flower.

Step 8.  Use the Garden Notes Ostrich Fern die set and die cut two ferns.

Step 9.  Attach the ferns, flowers and dragonflies as shown.
