Dragonfly Dreams GDP#110 1

Dragonfly Dreams GDP#110 Time for another challenge entry and this one is for the Global Design Project #110 which is a sketch challenge this week. I decided my design was going to use Watercolor Paper, for my Dragonfly Dreams GDP#110 challenge card and use one of the images from Dragonfly Dreams to ‘split’ my card front down the middle.
