CAS Tree branch with flowers and dragonfly

I have used a Memory Box die to cut out the tree branch from kraft paper.

The flowers are handmade. I tore the paper as I didn't want them to look too neat.

The dragonfly is cut out of a design paper, and I have added some Star Dust glitter glue to its wings and in the middle of the flowers.

The sentiment I made on my computer and printed it. 

Except for the white card base I have only used scrap papers. Feels good to make use of those scraps from time to time too.

A clean and simple card with pastel colors!

I enter this card into the following challenges:
1) Shelly's Images - Pastels, kraft & flowers
2) CAS-ual Fridays - Flowers / Trees
3) Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday – Rolled Paper
4) 4 Crafty Chicks - No stamping

I really love this! The tearing gives the paper flowers such a nice texture. I can't believe the branch is a die cut- it's so delicate! Really lovely CAS card :)
Thanks for joining the challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks this week!
