Meeting New Friends

     I was sorting through my collection of digis over the weekend and ran across one which had been saved but not in any particular folder so I have no idea who drew it or when I gathered it into my collection.  I'm sure I grabbed it because of my oldest granddaughter who adores dragons in any shape or size.  I know I've never colored it before so it'll be new to her.

    I think it's a classic representation of making new friends, regardless of how different they may be.  Or maybe it just shows how everyone and everything is attracted to baby dragons, even a butterfly.  :-D

     This is a rather CAS card made with scraps.  I started by printing the image on a scrap of CS, then I colored it with ProMarkers.  I cut two sides of it into an oval using an Unbranded die and left the other two sides straight.

     The checkered dp was a scrap with one corner missing but the colors worked so well with the image, I just had to use it.  I found scraps of ribbons in my stash, one of which has stitched edges.  I wrapped one around the checkered scrap and used the other ribbon to tie a bow.

     I found a pre-made card base with a teal front and began put the other layers onto it, creating the simple design you see here.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, inking the edge before adding it to the card front.  I added three tiny pearls to the upper corner, keeping the embellishment as simple as possible.

     I think I'll write a sweet note inside and mail it to my granddaughter for no reason other than I love her and we both love dragons.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
