Good afternoon wow where is this month going, can you believe that we are half way through and summer break will be over in 2 weeks!
Summer is my second favorite month - sorry I have to give my favorite to fall - the temperatures are lower but still pleasant and I love the fall colors.
But summer brings all the flowers and critters that love the flowers. We have a pond across the street from us so get some huge dragonflies buzzing around, with their iridescent colors flashing in the sunshine.
For today's card I have colored a bunch of Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Dainty Dragonfly stamps and colored them in a rainbow of colors:

I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. We have a theme of round about over on Prickley Pear blog so I used circle dies to cut my card and matting layers. On the pink layer I stamped one of my all time sentiments from Prickley Pear: Life doesn't have to be Perfect. This hits home with me every time I read it.
I shaped the dragonflies so that they look as though they are fluttering around the card. I added a few clear glitter dots just to balance my design and finish the card.

 Thank you for stopping by, you can find all the Prickley Pear stamps I have used over in their store here. If you are looking more inspiration from me and my teamies check the Prickley Pear blog and our Facebook page.
