Euan's 3rd birthday

It's all happening this week. It's another family birthday, this time my great-nephew Euan will be 3.

I have used a Jiggy dragon design. The lovely Jenny from MSE (Dragonllew) pointed us girls in the direction of Stamping Dragon Designs where the delightful Jiggy can be found.


I have used a 6" x 6" card base and covered it with MMC's green lattice paper which I printed on my computer. The green spotty paper is also from MMC and is layered onto some lilac card which I have punched with Martha Stewart's arch lattice edge punch. Then there's a strip of Core-dinations Whitewash purple card which has been cuttlebugged with Swiss Dots and sanded. Jiggy has been coloured using Promarkers and his wings glittered, and the green and lilac circles behind have been cut with my Nellie Snellen multiframe round die. The number 3 was printed on the computer using the font Ribbon Happy and this is layered onto green and lilac scallop circles cut with my Nesties. Three pieces of green card candy finish it off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts Week 50 - Animals
One Stitch At A Time - Children's themed challenge
Lexi's Creations Challenge #13 - Animals
The Creative Cottage Challenge #8 - Circles
Oh, Alice! Chapter#11 - Little People
Craftsandme Challenge #3 - Sparkle (dragon's wings are glittered)
