Get Well Dragon

     I have no idea why this image from The East Wind made me think of a "Get Well" card; maybe it was the potion bottle that made me think of  'a teaspoon of medicine?'  :-D  Whatever it was, I love the dragon and I know a granddaughter who will love it, too, so I'll have a get well card in the stash if she gets sick this winter.


My sketch came from Outlawz Sketch Challenge,
turned sideways.


     I colored the image (using a favorite blue and purple color combo) with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics and, although it doesn't show, I added sparkle gel ink to the bottle.  The image is cut with a framing die from Spellbinders and the polka dot blue mat is also die cut.  I layered that onto a deep purple CS, then added the sparkly striped ribbon.  I used that same ribbon to tie the bow with my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker.  Finally, I added the sentiment.  Can you believe everything was done with scraps from my stash, including the ribbon?

     So, this is my second post today but I won't have one again until Friday.  I'll be off line all day tomorrow and most of Friday afternoon, but will be around for a bit early Friday morning.  Then it's the weekend!  Yay, hooray!  And that means lots of Happy Stamping.  :-D  NanaConnie

Well, hopefully your granddaughter won't get sick this winter and need this card but it's lovely - and if she ever does get sick it's going to be so pretty to give her. Love the framework about it too.

Hi There, been under the weather with cyst under shoulder blade and bronchitis to boot. Starting to feel a little better. I am sure if this little dragon would help me get well or scare me to get well. Anyways a cute way to make you smile when you are not feeling up. Fab composition.

She is so sweet. She reminds me of one of the minor dragons in Donita K. Paul's Dragonspell books. Beautiful card.
