Pink Gem dragon


Finally a card! I've not had a very productive week for some reason, I think I'm in hibernating mode and I'm only going in the craft room for very short bursts - it's cold up there!

I've dug out a neglected stamp from Pink Gem Designs - it's ages since I used this one and I've no idea why because I think he's gorgeous, in fact I think I might use him again soon for a card my mum's asked for. He's coloured with my usual promarkers, with glamour dust on his wings because I like a bit of sparkle :o) The sentiment is a Stampin Up one that I got as part of a free gift when I subscribed to Papercraft Inspirations last year. The papers are new ones that I bought from Quixotic Paperie - they're MME and I think they're called Just Dreamy, the little stripy scalloped border strips are from the matching accessory sheet. Cardstock is DCWV, with some coredinations whitewash card for the star embossed circle - I love the effect of the whitewash when it's sanded back. Buttons are papermania, ribbon is one I scavenged from one of my birthday boxes of choccies lol. And FINALLY I've used my bow-easy, another purchase from Quixotic but ages ago - I played with it a bit when I first bought it but this is it's first proper use. I'm absolutely hopeless at bows usually!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
