Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons.....

I'm having so much fun with this dragon set from Jessica Lynn Original.
The verse was given to me by Sarah from The Stamp Shack. Sarah is from Perth, Australia and I mention it only because I marvel at how small the world is when we can 'meet' people from all over the world and, after a very short time, they become friends. I love it. Anyway, Sarah sent me this verse and on the inside of the card it reads,

'for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!'


I think it goes perfectly with Dudley. This is the card that's been rolling around in my head for the last day or two. Finally, this morning, I sat down to make it happen. I'm always surprised when it does because most of the time, it's not like that! Can't you just see Dudley just waiting for find a 'damsel in distress' so he can come to her rescue? After all, I'm sure he's a very gallant dragon.

The card base is Rose Red and the DP is from a Self-Addressed stamp kit from many months ago. The purple paper is from CTMH and these little bits were also in my stash of scraps. The colours just make me think 'regal'. I paper-pieced the flag using the same DP red paper. Copic markers were used to colour this image and the shield was stamped three times, once on the main image and then twice more on white cardstock. I then cut them out and used glue dots to mount them over the top of the original to give it a 3-D effect. I'm not sure it photographed well, but looks cool IRL.

That's about it for the details and I wanted to share it with you all straight away.

I love what you did with this dragon. Sarah's words on the outside with you words on the inside are a perfect team. You do humor so well.

Great card, Barb. I think your color choices are perfect with this little dragon, and I like how you "popped" the shield up. Thanks for sharing.
