The midweek throwdown challenge at OWH is to make an encouraging card for one of founders of OWH who is battling cancer. I definitely wanted to participate in this! I used sketch #38 from Freshly Made Sketches as my inspiration. Check their blog out here: Freshly Made Sketches and the latest sketch:
I used the Authenitque 6x6 paper pack called "Delightful" to make the card elements (the card itself is from Papertrey Ink). The Imaginesce tool was used to make the buttons on the dragonfly.

I hope you enjoyed my card and thoughts. I'm entering it in the following challenges:
