Scary Dragon!!

Welcome again - this is the last card in a roll - I should be doing some DT work, but I can't get into my studio for various reasons, so I finished this one off at the dining room table, having started it yesterday!

I needed a card for a six year old - I know he loves dinosaurs, but the only dinosaur image I have, I used on his card last year, but he is a lovely young man and will think the dragon is pretty good too.

I coloured up this image from Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon Studio using glitter pens and crayons -  then mounted him on two ovals, which as you can see both have some glimmer and shine to them.

The punched 'picket fence' border is one that I was sent in a RAK from  Lovely Linda, I threaded some plastic strands through it for extra fun.

I decided that I wanted a dimensional card, so I made an adapted easel card.

The sentiment is from Kiwistamping - I gold embossed it then coloured the letters with the same glitter pens that I used on the main image, cut it with a Nestie classic oval lg, and sponged it with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. Placed some lengths of the plastic thread under it, and added the buttons and the card was finished.

Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed.

Darling- how fun! I love the 'glitz' you added- the gold layer is so fun and love the shimmery weaving through the fence. Any 6 yr old I know would absolutely love this fun card!

Maxine, hi and I'm so glad I stopped by today to see this card. It looks like you just had fun coloring! This is fabulous and I love what you did to the fence and I just love everything about this card. The buttons are really great how you placed them, their colors and designs. God bless you! PS: Love the swirls on your Feel Good Flowers too.
