Congratulations! - Crafting with Dragonflies is 1 year old! + DT call!

Hello everyone!

Us dragonflies have our party hats on today, because Crafting with Dragonflies is one year old! Which of course means a matching challenge! The theme is Celebration, which can be any type of celebration you like, and I myself decided to go with Anniversary, using an image from one of our sponsors, Make it Crafty.

I fancied using a muted colour scheme, so went with mostly neutrals, with a hint of pink.


The papers are from the First Edition Love Letters pad, and I used one of my favourite Memory Box dies for the heart embellishments. I also used some Tattered Rose Distress ink to lightly colour the die-cut background around the image, as I felt the white was a little too white...

Now, we'd love it if you go see what my fellow Dragonflies have made, and join in with the fun, but there's an exciting opportunity for you all too... We're looking for a couple of new Dragonflies to join the team!
The full details are found here, but in a nutshell, if you fancy joining a fun group of crafty gals (for now, we welcome guys too!), to make not only cards, but all sorts of other items too (which was what drew me to the team in the first place), this is your chance!

In the meantime, have a fabulous day!

That is one of the neatest images I have seen in awhile. Almost looks like its from my era. Jill just went through and she said so too. Love it, love it, love it. I can almost here Moon River player in the background.

Great card - just so much fun! Sammy, your colours are perfect and give it the era affect Irish Cherokee mentions! I love that Memory Box die cut too, (and the stars as well) and don't use it often enough.
