Bringing a little summer to my friends in the north who are enduring winter right now. Dandelions and Dragonflies. You’re welcome! The new Dandy Garden Suite brings us the best of summer with Dragonflies, lady bugs, and a rich color palette of Calypso Coral, Bumblebee, Mossy Meadow, Misty Moonlight, and Blackberry Bliss what’s not to love? I paired this card with my Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the pretty patterned paper with the Dandelions. My little Dragonfly was punched out of another piece of the patterned paper, but I could also have stamped and punched him using one of the two Dragonfly stamps in the set.
