Hello sunshine

This is my card for the current challenge over on the Lollipop Ladies Challenge Blog.  Our challenge for this fortnight is:
Bug Lollipops

with the additional challenge of Nature.

Guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
and our sponsor this fortnight is: Mad for Markers*
(thanks to Sammi).
A choice of 3 of her M4M digi stamps.

I colored the dragonfly with markers and then added SU! diamond dust to the wings to give it a bit of that shimmer that dragonflies have.  And now that I think about it, it goes with the granules of sugar that you can see on the Lollies in the inspiration pic.

Challenges:
Cutie Pie Challenge #45--3,2,1 challenge (I used 3 colors: blue, green, purple, 2 text stamps, and one dragonfly image)
Get Inky #5--Good Golly Glitter (on wings and I used stickles on the flower center, plus misted the flower with glimmer mist)
DICC #55--choose at least 3 or the 10 options (chose #3--lots of layers; #7--silver; #8--winged thing)
Our Creative Corner--one from each of three lists (I chose Ribbon, Metal, and Inks)
One Crazy Stamper--Summer Fun
Sister Act #9--anything goes

Supplies:
Stamps: SU! "Bunch of Bugs"; Verve "Joyful Blooms" sentiment and flower; Hero Arts French Script
Dies: Spellbinders labels one and small borders; PTI leaves; Sizzix botanical blooms embossing folder
