Wow, Bonnie! I was looking at your woodgrain bg and thinking "my woodgrain paper is soon out, I wonder where Bonnie bought hers" and then I read you've made it by yourself! Stunning! I must learn this. :) That dragonfly die is gorgeous and I love the elegant, monochrome color palette. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

Oh Bonnie, what a fabulous card. I love the background and am amazed at how real it looks - clever you! Loving the die needless to say. And, double needless to say, I just ordered one for me and one for the toy box! This Playground is really such a bad influence :)
