Mother's Day Dragon Card

Good morning everyone! And a very Happy Wednesday to you!! I am working from home today!! And then tomorrow I am being recognized at work for 10 years. I can't believe I've been there for 10 years!! Thursday night is a Varsity Lacrosse game we are going to. Hmmm.. then on Friday I believe Kennesaw State Ladies Lacrosse is playing, so we will go see that as well. This weekend we are going to scrub the front porch and paint it. I think that is it?! It has been a busy week so far! I'm hoping to have a productive day at home today. I hope you all have a wonderful day too!! Be sure to hop over to Open-Minded Crafting Fun for the winners and DT Favorites post!

And now here is my next Mother's Day card that I put on Etsy:

I just love this image from The Paper Shelter! This is Best Day Of My Life. The image is fun, I love dragons! and I had a blast coloring this one! I colored this with Copic Markers and I've done a bit of layering. The background is also done with Copic Markers. The die cut around the image is from My Favorite Things. All of the papers are scraps I pulled out. I need to get back to using my scraps up! I did a bit of distressing and inked some papers. I've added a few pearls, some ribbon and some different flowers. I decorated the inside with the same papers, some more pearls and the same ribbon. I also added two different sentiment stamps.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Mom: RV00, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29
  • Nest: YR20, Y13, YR23, YR24
  • Egg Spots: Y00, Y11, Y18
  • Egg: V12, V15, V17, V09
  • Baby: B63, B66, B69, B79
  • Baby Belly: YG01, YG03, YG05, YG09
  • Background: BG02, BG53, BG57, BG09
