Dragonfly Dreams

This is a Vicki/Jeannie challenge card....Vicki wanted to try the dragonfly on the Home Decor cartridge.... I knew dragonflies are good luck..... so we went with the dragonfly cut and the greeting good luck.... I was at a loss.... went to work with this card on my mind.... a friend at work, Sharon... a real sweetheart....and an outdoor person for sure helped me come up with this idea when I asked her... "Sharon tell me where beside the creek that I would see dragonflies? I need to make a dragonfly card." .... we talked and talked about this and then I though on it all day long... I used hemp cord to make the bobbed wire fence....I cut my lengths and tied knots along the length ... then glued the knots in place ... Thank you so much Sharon.... I was so so so so happy with this card!!!.... it did take me forever!! Thank you so much for your comments!!.... Hugs! Jeannie You can see Vicki's Card Here!

Flowers cut @ 3/4 inch... I cut 6 of them.
Stems cut @ 1 1/2 inch.
