Another Night of Card Making

I scraplifted this card for a very special lady (a teacher) who is retiring after 35 years of dedication and hard work. I don't know the name of the cardmaker of the original design. If you do, please let me know so I can give credit to the author.
The base of the card and the 2 shaped mats were cut from Accent Essentials. I shaded the bottom mat and the flower using teal blue Cat's Eye ink. The top mat has been attached using pop dots for added height.
The dragonflies and the flowers were cut from Doodlecharms. I embossed the top layer of each dragonfly using the Cuddlebug machine and the swiss dots folder. I adhered them to the mat using thin, foam pop dots and lifted the wings to give them more definition and dimension.
I stamped the sentiment on the top layer of the flower using tea blue ink also.
I followed Aymee's tutorial to create the ruffle design made by the sheer teal blue ribbon. Then, I doubled the ribbon to make it a deeper shade of teal and tied the bow.

This card has a very soft, feminine look which I really like. It was fun to put together.

Here is a close-up which shows the various details of the card.

I made this card for a co-teacher who has a niece graduating from high school tonight.
It is very similar to a card I made earlier in the week (it is posted below).
I used the same paper line, stamp, Cricut cartridge, and verse on the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking. Please take time to be thankful for our military and remember the true meaning of Memorial Day (not the meaning given by some high school students who were visiting the Capital - "it's when the pool opens!").
