A Dragon Wish...

Meddle not in the affairs of the dragon; for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. -Anon

My son wanted to make a card with me, so we sat down and looked through stamps. He was very disappointed that I didn't have any dragon stamps, so I went online to find an image he liked. We both really liked THIS image so we went with that.

I used Copics to color the image and followed this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch. The paper is Pink Paislee 365 Degrees and KaiserCrafts Peachy Keen (available at Sharon's Stamp Simply Store.) For the inside I used scraps of the papers, Verve's Happy Everything sentiment and a swirl from a random clear set I have from ages ago...can't remember what set it is now...
