Sparkly Dragon

     I had so much fun with my last Meljen's Designs image that I just had to use another, this one for a child's birthday card.  Don't you just love this silly dragon with his sparkly wings and toe nails?


Again, colors are from Meljen's Designs
and the sketch idea came from AAA Cards
where they want to see a CAS, 'window' block design.

  

     The dragon image is colored with ProMarkers and I added glitter to the wings, toes, and horns.  The striped dp is from DCVW, one of their "Nursery" stacks.  Stars and gems are from my stash.  I used white ribbon to make the 'window block' and it came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Very CAS and perfect for mailing.

     This one has to have you singing "Puff, the Magic Dragon" or at least reaching for the book, "St. George and the Dragon."  OK, maybe he's too cute to be St. George's dragon but still...

     Mid-way through the week, my friends!  Sometimes I hate how I wish my way through the weekdays to get to the weekends.  It means I forget to enjoy the 'right now' moments.  But I do love my crafting weekends.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Hi Connie, You're really getting into the swing of cas cards. Your dragon is adorable and the 4-up is great. Thank you for playing along. The dragon reminds me of this silly YouTube clip about "what if animals were fat?". Hugs Victoria, AAA Cards
