CCK - Green Dragonfly

 This is a card I made for June challenge at ChingChou Kuik's Challenge and Inspiration blog - I used a grayscale image called Green Dragonfly and you can find it here.

Image was colored with alcohol markers and I added some extra shimmer to the dragonflies using Wink of Stela. The cracked acetate in the background is from SU and it reminded me of the pattern on the wings. Added some glitter CS for extra shimmer and flowers and ribbon from my stash.
