So here is my card...

 I decided to use the Visible Image dragonfly stamp, and repeat stamp the image
on glossy card.
I then embossed with clear embossing powder.
To make the 3D dragonfly I triple embossed a piece of mountboard  (UTEE)just big enough for the image and stamped a black image into the molten embossing powder.
I then used distressed inks around the card to match in with the triple embossed image.
To finish off the image I used an assortment of gems to fill the torso of the dragon fly.
many thanks for calling by,

Pretty exciting to be underway! I was wondering how you made your 3D dragonfly, it is so very cool, and I love the black and blue/green combinations! Great color choices for your embossing and distress inking.
