Dragonflies

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme  “Don’t BUG Me”.  Please visit the Double D Challenge blog and DD_Bugssee more wonderful samples from our talented designers and join in the fun! We have a prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org. and a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I was inspired by the dragonfly and green colors in the mood board. I decided to make an oblong vintage card for this challenge. I chose kraft paper for the base card and then add a layer designer paper in shades of cream and turquoise. I added a strip of cotton lace and then the three dragonflies to fill the length of the card. For contrast I added die cut leaves and turquoise flowers. A sentiment, wax cord bow and pearls are the final touches. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
