Not a square Dragonfly

Bit of a weird title but hey ho.
Today I have a card that has been created for the Allsorts challenge 'No squares allowed'
I have no squares but have used instead rounded rectangles and scalloped circles.
The papers I used are from a 12x12 pack called Oyster Blush.
You can't really see the effect but they have a beautiful pearlescent shimmer to them.
The dies used are Spellbinders scalloped circles.
The stamp is also from Spellbinders called 'Natures collections'
They were free on an issue of cardmaking and papercraft.
I have coloured this with promarkers and also added some pearlescent glitter to the wings,
this is what has given them the shimmer.
Crochet lace, bow and button add the finishing touch.

 I am adding this to...
