  1. Beautiful cards. I am so partial to dragon flies - can't get enough of them. I love the rustic look too. The second one is really pretty with those colors, I always like gray and pink together. And then the third one is stunning with the embossed background and clean and simple look. That flower is stunning. You have outdone yourself once again!!!

  2. WOW! You have been one busy girl. The rustic look on the first one with the dragon flies is really cool. The second one is so cute and pink & gray is one of my favorite combos. Like Judy said, the third one is so stunning.

  3. Beautiful dragonfly card! Thank you for sharing with us at CYHTP Challenge.

  5. Oh wow you have been busy and did a wonderful job with the challenges! The first is my favorite with that mixed media, vintage look to it, love the dragonflies, just awesome.
    The second is so pretty and love what you did with the sketch, when I saw it on their blog I thought I don't know what I would do with that but you have come up with such a lovely card.
    Great idea to use the goodies from your win, Congrats!! The flower with the foil cardstock is so pretty!

  6. I am partial to your mixed media backgroudn to set off those gorgeous dragonflies. What texture your achieved. YOur combo of soft pink and gray really got me for the tulips card. So pretty! You are still lucky to be winning sullpies and making your garden grow with these pretty paper flowers.

  7. I love all three of these cards, Donna, but have to say I'm partial to the green (fav color) with the dragonflies. Lots of texture and dimension on this too. The pale pink and gray coordinate well together and I love your metallic flower. You are so inspiring, GF!
