Dragonfly Card Drive

When I read about the Taylored Expressions Dragonfly Card Drive I was so moved that I knew I had to make cards for it. Please read everything about it here


This is the first card I made for the drive:



The droplets on the background symbolize the tears that are shed, the script symbolizes the words that were never spoken and the floss "holds" everything together. I can`t imagine (and honestly don`t want to imagine) the pain these people have to endure. I hope that Taylor will collect many cards for her drive!

This dragonfly is from the Hero Arts digi kit "Winged Friends". I colored it with copics and added Rock Candy distress stickles. Because I used floss, I will submit this card to Moxie Fab World's "Fun With Floss" Challenge.

Thanks to everybody for your sweet words on my last post - I feel much better, but the next day my husband and my little girl were both sick. It helped me a lot to read your sweet comments between cleaning and washing!

Hugs,
Vanessa

I felt the same way about the drive when I heard about it, too! My cards aren't nearly as beautiful as yours, but it is the thought that counts, I guess. Thanks for posting!

Gorgeous card, Vanessa!! Your dragonfly is exquisite and I love that every bit holds meaning. What a wonderful drive that Taylor is heading up and you are contributing your talent to. :> I'll have to look and see if I have a dragonfly image somewhere to use.

Hope your husband & daughter feel better soon! :>
