May Today Be As Special As You Are

Hello I hope you enjoyed your weekend, it was quite short if you ask me but hear goes Monday morning again. I did manage to finish up a card using this sweet Saturated Canary image Lovely I recently purchased. She was colored with Copic Markers, it feels nice to color with my markers again.
I used these papers i recently purchased from my Local Scrapbook Store, don't know if you can see them but my background one has these adorable golden keys printed. My sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, Everyday Circle Postmarks is essential in any crafters stash. I love this set!
A close up on the image, which was fun coloring.
I added embossing powders to the dragonfly, I made my own mixture mixing 3 different colored powders, love the outcome and you can still see the paper in some spots of the dragonfly.
These are the three colors I mixed, Opaque White, Blushing Pink Opaque and Jeweled Gold.
This is my three colors in a small container for future use, try this, I loved the outcome and I have loads of embossing powders that I purchased a long time ago that I can mix and make new colors!
Last an angle shot of the whole card, Thanks for your visit!!
