Welsh Dragon

What a better day than St David's day to post my WOJ dragon and I think he's worked out beautifully and of course I've 3d him too. I've used the Truly Scrumptious sketch but I've turned it hoping to put ribbon or something down the side but I liked the corners so I thought a bow but I didn't think it was very dignified to have a bow where he's tail is. The papers are BG and I use Prismacolours and Sansador for colouring.

Tracey asked about getting a Cricut, too be honest if I was just a cardmaking I'm not sure I would have brought it, I tend to use it more for cutting out alphabets, although I probably don't make the most of it anyway.

Off to Scrapbuddies today not sure how much will get done, hardly did anything at MJ the other week and if MJ hadn't done a challenge I would have done even less.

Oh I love everyting about this so much! It's just fantastic! The image, the 3d-ness, the matting, the embellishments, the colour, the way you've put everything together. I know it sounds like I'm gushing, but I'm not - I think it's the best card I've seen in ages!

hugs, Sem x

This is fantastic Debbie. The way you've layered the stamp is perfect and that image is so right for a St David's Day card. I love those corners - they finish the card so well.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks.
