a one layer card. . . .

for Magenta's August challenge:



All of the stamps I used on this card are from Magenta:



I added some light sponging for the background and the border was drawn by hand with a Pitt pen.  The flowers were colored with Prismacolor pencils.  There are touches of glitter on the flowers and wings of the dragonflies, but this doesn't show up in this poorly taken photo!  :)

Hope your weekend is a good one!
