RetroSketch #22

I had to make up a card for MILs birthday, so was inspired to use this week's retrosketch:
We're giving her a gift cert to a restaurant in their town (dragonfly cafe), so of course I thought to put a dragonfly on the card. Well perfect! i have a lovely brassish one that i've stolen from a card I was given... but try as i may, i just could NOT get that to work on the card. So I went with sparkly blue. The proportions of the card are a bit different than the sketch, but I really did try to follow it. The colors are very vanilla, my very favorite soft suede DSP (retired from a holiday mini a few years ago), and baja breeze. The sentiment is from the SU Bring on the Cake set, which I cut in half so I could have the sentiment doubled up like that (not crooked, ahem)
