Wow, it has been a long time since I have been able to craft.  I have been up in Duluth, MN for the last month.  I was asked to help set up a new JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts store in that location.  It was full of long days, stress, and of course a lot of fun.  The grand opening was a fantastic success, but I am glad to be back home.  I missed my bed and I really missed my craft room.  So, here is what I created as my first project in a month.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of light grey card stock.  I used a dark grey card stock for the mat, which I cut using one of the Card Mat Dies from Jaded Blossom.

The green and aqua panels are also cut from the Card Mat Dies.  I used the Stitched Circle Dies from Jaded Blossom for the light grey circle.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays stamp set.

The dragon is from the Critters Ever After stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  I used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I colored it with some Distress markers by Tim Holtz.  I then added some firefly Stickles to the ridges on the back of the dragon, glossy accents to its belly, and Wink of Stella to its horns and wing.

I used foam tape to pop up the dragon.  I then added some glittery washi tape behind the dragon.  I finished off the card with some aqua gems.

I made this for the following challenges:
Color Throwdown: color combo
City Crafter Challenge Blog: something that doesn't exist
Cute Card Thursday: recipe - 3 brads/gems, 2 papers, 1 ribbon/washi
Pile It On: sparkle
