Dragonfly retirement card

It's the first time I have made a retirement card but didn't find it difficult to get into the spirit of the theme - it was quite relaxing actually! I used light purple lace and made a little flower charm from metallic pearls. The ribbon on the right is knitting yarn.

Challenges: Scrapmaster's Paradise Colour Combo #10, ABC, Charisma Cardz # 32, stamps and smiles #28, Rainbow lady's # 72, Jacksonbelle, Lily of the valley #34, Stamping for the weekend #11
