Wishful Asha

2015 is flying by too fast.  It's the middle of June already!  Sorry I haven't been doing much card making lately.  My allergies are always the worst in May and June.  Meds take care of the sneezing but the itchy and swollen eyes make it difficult to craft.
Our new challenge at Aud Sentiments is "Summer with an appropriate sentiment"  I used this fabulous sentiment from one of our DT members, Ginny.  It's free so hop on over to the challenge blog and save it to use for your own projects. 
We are sponsored by Make it Crafty.  They were generous to allow each DT member to choose an image to use for the challenge.  I chose Wishful Asha.  As kids we always loved picking up the dandelions, making a wish and blowing on them.  She pairs up nicely with Ginny's sentiment too.

After cutting out the dragonfly, I used purple and pink chalk for some added color.  I then painted over the wings with extreme glitter paint.

Oooooh... I LOVE her hair Julie! Masterful coloring! The sentiment is perfect for this image too. Love the fence die cut you used and the soft plaid background is a great choice!
