Pink dragon and an award

A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to win some lovely goodies from I love Promarkers including this cute dragon stamp from Whiff of Joy. He wouldn't quite fit in the oval nestie so had to cut round his legs. I really like the result with his legs hanging over the oval. I teamed him with some papers from Dovecraft Piece of Cake and used 2 MS heart punches. Some faux stitching, 3 pearls and a ticket sentiment keep this card quite simple but knowing when to stop embellishing is an art in itself.

Challenges:
I love Promarkers Stitching
Creative Card Crew Fantasy
ABC O is for ovals
Fab 'n' funky 1 image, 2embellishments, 3 papers
Papertake Fab sketch


I was honoured to receive this award from Margaret.


I'm supposed to tell you 8 things you may not know about me and pass it on to 8 bloggers. I would like to pass this on to my lovely teamies at Winter Wonderland for being such a great team to work with. I know that's 10, not 8, but rule are meant to be broken sometimes. I need to get ready soon as I am meeting my good friend Lynsey for coffee at lunchtime and have to pop into Hobbycraft first so don't have time to do the 8 things at the moment.
