Dragonfly Beauty, Card 2

I promised to show you another card using Stampin' Up!'s Dragonfly Dreams die cuts.  Here you go.

Again, I had trouble photographing this card.  I can assure you it's stunning!  I wanted a wow factor because I made this card for my excellent, dashing, intelligent and wonderful son.  He recently started a new job and he moved from Alabama to Florida.  Now he's only 2 1/2 hours from us and I couldn't be happier.  Of course I'm proud as punch of him.  Kids never grow out of your heart, even if they are adults.  Anyway, I thought this was very classy and elegant but in a different way than yesterday's card.  

I started with some SU Designers Series Paper that has kind of a watery etheral look.  It has gray tones to it but also has touches of copper.  I chose to die cut the dragonfly out of copper foil this time.  I only used the detailed die, opting not to put the solid cut out underneath.  I also die cut a copper foil oval and stamped the sentiment on a smaller oval.  I took a handful of copper thread and loosely gathered it together and attached the oval panel on top.  

Dad and I will be celebrating with you soon, Chris.  Love you bunches!
