Dragon Friendship Card

I had a lot of fun coloring this dragon from MelJen's Designs, he is just so cute!!

The dragon is colored with copics and I added some stickles to add some whimsey to the detailing around him. The paper is from Pebbles. (American Crafts is based here in Utah and they have a big warehouse sale once a year. I am so lucky, I scored on TONS of absolutely darling patterned paper from them! You will be seeing alot more of it in the coming months! :) I also used a border punch from American Crafts (also scored at the warehouse sale, lol!) Tied a little ribbon, (surprise surprise, ALSO from American Crafts!) and done! I found this tutorial on how to tie bows using a fork on pinterest. I used it to tie this bow! It's a little tough, because this ribbon is probably a little stiffer than the ideal ribbon for this technique, but I still felt it came out pretty good! You can find that tutorial here.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Hi Heather! I am so happy you liked my layout for The Paper Variety! Yes, Bauer is our boxer puppy! He is just 7 months old. I love boxers! Had them growing up and then my husband and I had one (Gilmore) for 9 years. We went 2 years with no dog but this summer we welcomed Bauer to our home! I love him, he is the best thing we have done in a long time! I named him Bauer after the brand of Hockey Equipment! BTW - Love your blog and creations! Thanks for stopping by!
