Prickley Pear Monday

It’s Prickley Pear Monday and I can’t believe how fast last week went by!  I have a feeling this summer is going to fly by the way things are going!  I guess time flies when you’re having fun!

Father’s Day weekend proved to be a relaxing one.  We had baked spaghetti and a lemon cake for dessert.  The cake recipe I found on, one of our favorite recipe sites.  DH liked it, but I still want to find a recipe that tastes like that Starbucks lemon loaf!!  Someday…

For today’s card creation, I dry embossed a piece of grey cardstock using a new chevron pattern from StampinUp!  I then used Prickley Pear’s Mini Hibiscus Die to cut out the hibiscus image and then divided the panel into thirds.  I then placed a piece of chevron patterned decorative paper behind them and mounted everything on a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.  The sentiment if from the Prickley Pear Hibiscus 2 clear stamp set.

    What a fabulous card, Melissa! I so adore all the chevrons and love the negative die cut flower! Such wonderful colors here, too!

    This is really a cool-looking card with the printed and embossed chevron combination! Love how you did that flower too!!
