Dragon Babies

Hi there, and happy Monday, and happy March!!! ALREADY!!!! It’s unreal how fast time flies when you’re not watching it!!  We are mid-way through the current challenge at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog, and it’s such a fun theme, with so many interpretations.

Check out the post at the beginning of the challenge, as well as the mid-challenge inspiration, for all kinds of cool projects from our DTs.  I guarantee it will get you thinking about rainbows (or songs, or movies….or…)  I took the theme quite literally, and colored the Baby Dragons image (found HERE in the Digi Shop, and HERE at the Etsy store) in bright, rainbow colors with my Copic markers.

I fussy cut them out after coloring, so I could place them on the raised centre part of a lattice die cut frame. I used the same color markers and blending solution to make the background that carries through with the rainbow theme.  The sentiment was computer generated, cut into a banner, and popped up with foam.

Since this card was going together so nicely, and not causing me any grief whatsoever, I decided to “fix” that, and place pearls at the intersecting sections of the lattice. I’m loving the bright and cheerful look of this card, to celebrate the double joy of twins 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
