Dragon’s Lil Princess

Hi there 🙂 I had a little play with an image from The Paper Shelter today. I colored up The Best Day of My Life with my Copics, then fussy cut it out.

I knew I needed baby cards, so I chose to make it a girly card, with lots of pink. I found a piece of pink spotted paper in my stash, that I wouldn’t normally use for a baby card, but it seemed to work with the image, and the pink banner shape that I’d die cut. I also cut a scalloped mat for the banner, just to give it some definition against the printed background. I popped the image on with some foam dots, then tied a piece of coordinating pink ribbon into a bow. I cut the ‘congrats’ sentiment out, but felt that it needed a backing, and this die didn’t have a coordinating shadow/backing piece….so I traced the outside of the entire die onto white, then carefully cut it out. TaDa!! perfect fit!! After finishing with the assembly of the card, it still needed a teeny bit more, so I added some white dots around the outside edge with my Posca pen.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
