Dragonfly Dreams

 Hello Crafter's. So glad you could stop by. Pretty September morning here in Indiana. Will be heading out to Church in a little while.

Today I wanted to share a  birthday card that I made for my sister Christy. 

I have had that pretty paper for months and I couldn't take it anymore. I knew that I was going to use it in my next project. 

So added it to the birthday card I made for my sister. I'm pretty sure that I picked it up at Joann's. 

I knew the bottom of the card needed something so I added some grass. I think it really helped add to the card.

I do want to give a little credit to my grand daughter Scarlett. She had messaged me and ask me what I was doing. When I told her I was working on a card, she wanted me to send her a picture of it. She thought I should add the little dots to the background. So I did and I think It made it look a lot better. I told her she was a natural crafter. Thank you Scarlett for the suggestion.

Loving how this card turned out with the pretty dragonflies flying in front of the sun. So pretty, I'm sure she will love it. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today. We crafty bloggers love other crafters to visit don't we?

  Happy Birthday Christy!!!
