Dragonfly Card

Dragonflies are a welcomed visitor here at our yard aka, "suburban woods". I remember as a teen and swimming in the pool we had at my childhood home there was always this one dragonfly. He would fly around and always land on my Mom's book as she floated in the pool. We thought it may be my deceased Uncle JF giving her a sign of comfort.
Ok, I'm totally thinking summer now. My hubby is finally draining our inground pool. Too many leaves to try to simply prep for summer. It takes over a week to fill our pool- seriously, it's huge! We get ducks in it when we have it closed- resembles a public pool. Found a new blogging group- Outlawz and checked a new challenge they have this week for Clean and simple designs- which are totally my type of designs- I dread bulk and totally lack time (being a Mom of 3 little girls, etc).
(As usual my pic of the card does it no justice bc I use my mac's photobooth- I'm too lazy to run down to 3 flights to get my camera.)

I think this card has a glimmery rustic feel. I used Tattered Angels glimmer mists, dragon fly screen and dragon fly stamp. I used 3 different glimmer colors- midnight blue, mimosa, and yellow daisy. I used Adirondak's ginger dye ink for the stamped image. I couldn't help myself and had to add CTMH's itty bitty sparkles for the eyes. I also distressed the edges of the card with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.I am entering this card in the following challenges:
