Dragon Go Round

Happy Tuesday friends.

Today's card is another first for me, a shaped card. Flower blossom more specifically. It's a birthday card that I am going to send to Lacey's 100 birthday cards for someone who is turning 100 card drive. The image is Dustin Pike's cute Dragon Go Round. I coloured him with prisma colour pencils and gamsol. I used spica glitter pens to add some "star dust" The picture doesn't show the sparkly effect. I added some stars around the sentiment to add some real stars for this week's High Hopes challenge. I cut the blossom shaped using my cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software. The green circle behind the image has been paper pierced. The base of the card and a few accents on the card are Green for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge 102 Lucky Green. Finally for the Critter Sketch Challenge, I know the image doesn't contain a flower, but the card itself is a flower. The image has been coloured yellow, blue, and green for the colours. The Basic Grey paper I used is a great combination of mostly blue with a few specs of yellow from the Lime Rickey line. I stamped the Paper Trey Inc. birthday wishes sentiment on the yellow paper in the Lime Rickey 6x6 paper pack. I added some blue ribbon that ties the two sides of the Cards/flowers together.
