Magical Day Dragon

What fun to finally do some stamping again.  I've been traveling and recovering from traveling.  My grandson's 5th birthday party is tomorrow and I've been anxious to FINALLY use this adorable Magical Day Bundle to make his birthday card.

The card base is Old Olive.  I stamped the dragon repeatedly for the background on a Whisper White panel. I layered it onto a Basic Black panel that shows just a 1/16th border.  In hindsight I might have stamped off the dragon to make the background a little more subtle.

I stamped another dragon with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and colored him with Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The coordinating die set made cutting a breeze.  The Blends make me feel like an artist!  I colored the fire with Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Markers. If you don't have the Blends, markers and a Blender Pen work very well.

 I highlighted areas with my favorite pen, the Wink of Stella   It adds just enough sparkle and a bit of magic.  The inside was stamped with a greeting and I added Wink of Stella to it as well.  Finished it off with some Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.

I'd love to be your source for all things Stampin' Up!  You can get the products I've used for this project from my online store here.  Sadly, the Magical Day bundle will be retiring on May 31(or while supplies last) so get it now.  Be sure to use my April Host Code when placing your order.  Of course you do not need the code if your order is $150 as you will qualify for benefits.
Thank you for looking. I love reading your comments.
