Dragonfly Journey

I participate in 365 Cards challenges a LOT! One of the girls over there has blog candy and you need to participate in order to be entered. This is my take on the sketch, as well as my entry for her blog candy. You had to use a dragonfly on your card to be entered. I am not 100% sure this is what she had in mind for her dragonflies, but.....

Now - here's the details for this one. I try to do all 7 of them each week and since I have a habit of putting 3, 4, even 5 challenges on any given card - 365 Cards gives me at least one challenge I can incorporate everyday. Since I feel the theory behind 365 Cards is to make a card each day, I don't usually put more than one 365 Cards challenge on any given card. This one I made the exception for - but only because I already did the sketch challenge this week. So I did do a separate card for it. Anyway, all that being said - here's the challenges this card incorporates:

  • This week one of the challenges was to incorporate three 365 Challenges into your card - one from each March, April & May. I chose March 18 - Going green - make green the dominant color on the card, April 28 - Miss you type sentiment - I felt "wish you were here" not only fit, but was comical on this particular card and May 22, which was to make a matching envelope.
  • This is also the Super Sketchy Sunday sketch from 365 Cards this week - with the dragonflies in order to be entered for the blog candy.
  • Once again, Flourishes Timeless Tuesday asked for us to use Patterned Paper.
  • Last but certainly not least, If the Shoe Fits asked for green, blue and yellow as a color combination.
On Saturday - two challenges came up that this card was so fitting for that I did link it to them, although I will probably do another card for each of them so that I am within the timeframe. But those two challenges are:
Lastly, I must note - the idea behind this card was not mind. Credit for the actual idea goes to Dalis - I can only take credit for actually putting the idea on paper!
