Digital Tuesday, Funky Fairy, Rainbow Lady and ABC Challenges.

After my wonderful award I decided it was time I made my Dragon card for the challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog. I used the sketch from Digital Tuesday shown below.
As luck would have it Dustin Pike has just released a great freebie called "Helping Hand" which is perfect.
Having chosen the Christmas digi stamp I therefore decided to enter the challenge at Funky Fairy's which is "Christmas", and you must use some of their papers. I have used some papers I found on the Funky Fairy's Inspiration site, the freebies are on the sidebar. I used one from Blue Christmas and one from the purple set. I also used a Smirk ribbon slider for my sentiment which is on some purple polka dot ribbon by Smirk.

I then coloured the image in with watercolour pencils and mounted it on black glitter card. Unfortunately, even in the close up you can't see the colouring as well as I would like.

I am also entering this card into the ABC Challenge which is "A is for ...... Anything Goes" with an optional extra of Animals.

Comments are always welcome. Thanks

Hi Ali, The sentiment was already on the bag it is a file you just print out everything is there, just cut out glue and add some handles and tag, really very quick to make.
Hope your having a nice day:)
