A Dragon Birthday


Hello stampers!! It's a wonderful new week filled with Holiday preparations, parties, and family gatherings! All in celebration of the birth of our King!! How awesome is that!!

Well, some people are blessed to be born during this time, and that means doing our best to make the birthday special apart from celebrating our Lord's birth. One of those special people happens to be my nephew. I think this JustRite Dragon from the Adorable Dragon set is just darling! I love his heart shaped tail, and his expression seems to say "I have a secret".

Well, I stamped him with Versamark onto watercolor paper, embossed him with Detail Black ep, and colored him with my Tombows.

I decided he needed a castle in the background, so I embossed the panels with a textured Cuttlebug folder, and punched the top with EK Successes Binding Edge Edger Punch. I then diecut the window with Spellbinders' Long Rectangle die and stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Adorable Dragon set inside. I wish now that I would've cut out some vertical windows in the base of the turret, but, alas, the card is now in the hands of my nephew.

The kraft bg was also embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

That's it ya'll. I hope you are all have a blessed week with family and/or friends!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
