To be a princess for a day....

....dreams, imagination, fantasy....that is the theme over at the Caardvark's Challenge this month! How neat is that? I've never made a fantasy card before, so this was a great challenge for my little brain cells:

I utilized several of my favorite stamps and florals - a tad of sponging and lot of coloring to create this fun card!

Love this fanciful dragon stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs:


That little bowtie on the right hand side of the card is actually a fun story here.....I had cut the ribbon too short and when I went to tie it, only one loop came out instead of the usual two loops...lol....I sat back and looked at it and thought it looked whimsical.....so I just went with it! ;)


Enjoy the card and have a great day!!

Materials used:

Stamps: Sketched Sentiments and Once Upon A Time by Lizzie Anne Designs. Hero Arts.

Papers: Papertrey Ink and We R Memory Keepers.

Ribbon by PI.

Prima Floral Vine and orange leaf.

Dragons are usually depicted as being up to no good but this one looks downright adorable! Like he's going to give the castle an Extreme Home Makeover with a flick of his magic wand. :)
Fantastic job Tiffany and thanks for playing at Caardvarks!
