Unity Circles Challenge

My first thought for this card was the Unity Blog Challenge; Circles, Circles, Circles and Friday Friends With Flair
I knew I wanted a round card, and I knew I wanted black and white. The teal was a happy discovery when my three year old grandson was "helping" me pick colors :)
 The dragonfly was chosen by him too! That may be due to him being terrified of a real one at the beach last week ;) 
The dragonfly is from the Unity Store Kit, Bold Insight. The dragonfly is colored with Copics (BG10, BG13, BG15, and BG18), then I went over it with Copic Spicas in Buttermilk, Gold, and Clear. 
The script on the circle beneath the dragonfly is from Unity's December, 2009 Kit of the Month. It's a big rectangle, but I punched a circle out of it.  

I'm entering this in the Play Date Cafe's challenge 91, Just a Splash. You are to use black and white and just a splash of one other color of your choice. There's still plenty of time to play! 
I'm also linking up to All Things Unity Challenge 35, Wrap It Up, using twine and ribbon. 
Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate it so much! And if you leave a comment I will stop by your blog and leave some love too ;) I would love to see your creations!!!
Have an awesome weekend!
