Hug Your Dragon

      All dragons need hugs but that's especially true of the young ones.  When hugged often and gently, they train well and become lifelong companions, cuddling to keep you warm in the winter and fanning you softly with their wings to cool you in the summer.  

     My eldest granddaughter and I are both crazy about dragons and when I saw this image from Mariola Budek, I grabbed it right away.  It comes as a pdf file in one of her digital coloring books.  I'm sure this card will end up in the hands of my granddaughter, with or without an occasion, but celebrating dragons is always an occasion in itself!.

     I colored it with ProMarkers and pencils, cut it with a die from Memory Box, and framed it with a die cut rectangle (QuicKutz) of scrap dp.  The yellow background dp is from Recollections.  The sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die.  For a bit of embellishment on the otherwise simple card design, I added the wrap of sparkle twine and fluffed the ends to make a tassel.

I used the colors found at Cupcake Inspirations challenge.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
