I'm hopping around with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and CardMaker Magazine

Good Morning!

It's an exciting day today, Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps are joining with CardMaker magazine for a blog hop!

Do you want the chance to win a $20 gift certificate to spend on the gorgeous stamps over at Prickley Pear? then find out how at the end of my post.

My card for the hop is using the new Danity Dragonflies stamps:

I stamped them onto acetate using archival ink. I then turned them over and colored then with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and they were then shaped so that their wings flutter on the card. 
I then stamped 'There is only one happiness' sentiment on to some rainbow design paper and matted this with green card onto a white card base.
The dragonflies were the added being careful to only stick the body down. I added some green gems just to balance the design.

To win the gift certificate all you have to do is hop over to my teamies blogs to see the gorgeous designs they have made. Don't forget to leave them some love along your way,  then head to the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps blog and leave a comment. 

You should have arrived here from Kat's blog and now you need to hop over to see what Melissa has designed for us.
If you get lost along the way just head back to CardMaker's blog for the full list of participants.

Good luck and have fun checking out all the gorgeous makes!
