Happy New Year!

Good evening everyone, I hope your mojo's have been given a well earned rest and are raring to go again.
I have made something other than a card today - a box for a wine bottle. The family have been invited to some good friends for New Years Eve so I thought this was the ideal opportunity to make something special for them.
I have used one of the templates from a MyCraft Studio CD Rom - A Classic Christmas. I have added a couple of fab freebies one from Dustin Pike Celebration Dragon and a ticket from Miss Cutie Pie and can be found here - thanks Jan for the tip. Here is a close up of the image which has been coloured using Promarkers and Sakura Stardust pens.
I put the dragon on using foam pads so he could peek over the ticket. I added the words and used a freebie font called Santa's Big Secret.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Crafty Cardmakers - Favourites of the year - I have two since starting in July I have discovered digi images and Promarkers,

Great bottle holder, Ali. I love that image, especially the dragon's nostrils (why the nostrils specifically, I have no idea!!!). Thanks for the link too, I have a few dragon-loving friends that I'll forward it on to!

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay again.
