Dragon Friend

     This darling little dragon from Sasayaki Glitter has been in my collection of images for many months without ever being used.  I decided it was time - in fact past time! - to get him colored up and onto a card.  Since Sasayaki Glitter wants us to "Use Purple" for their current challenge, he's decked out in his best purple and green for spring.  :-D


I started with the sketch from Outlawz.


     I colored him with my ProMarkers and cut him with a die from Spellbinders.  The butterflies are cut with dies from QuicKutz and I layered two different sizes to make a double layer butterfly.  The white butterfly bodies are made from the bits which dropped out of the Spellbinders' die.

     The ribbons were in my stash and are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I found the butterfly charm in my stash and it just seemed to be perfect for this card.

     Challenges:
Aussie Artists Open
Craft-Dee BowZ
Crafty Gals Corner
Crazy Challenge
Die Cuttin' Divas
Digi Choosday
Fairy and Unicorn
Tuesday Throwdown

     Happy Sunday and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

A fabulous card Connie, that dragon is just so cute. Thank you for your kind words on the loss of my beautiful Tiggy! A lot of tears have been shed and I expect a lot more to come. She will be missed as she was my first pet.
