Summer Dragonfly

Dear Ones~
It's still pretty warm here. The Princes went back home on Wednesday, but I have been so busy this is the first chance I have had to play in my craft room.

Today's card was made for:
Mod Squad Challenge - make a tri-fold card. This challenge is hosted this week by my dear friend, Barb Campbell. Check out her blog HERE. I love her work.
Stamp TV Monday Challenge - make a summer card. My sweet friend Sharyn Polesel is hosting this one. HERE is a link to her blog. She is over-the-top talented as well.

Here's my card:

I must apologize for the poor quality of this photo. I just got a new MacBook Pro, and I'm having a heck of a time finding stuff in it. My photos seem to be lost in cyber-space somewhere, so this one will have to do. I think the cattail looks like a hot But I digress. We live in a town that has a wonderful river called The AuSable running through it, and we will often go canoeing. The dragonflies flit around in the sunshine while we paddle along, so seeing a dragonfly always makes me think of summer. And of course this is a gate fold card.

Here are the ingredients:
GKD Dark Chocolate Card Stock
HOTP Nature's Walk Patterned Paper
GKD The Wetlands Stamp Set
Zig Clean Color Brush Pens
Memento Inks in Summer Sky and Pistachio
Stickles and Stash Ribbon
