A Birthday with the Dragon

One of my favorite sponsors is back for this week's Cooking It Up With Katie.  Stamping Dragon Designs is sponsoring this week's challenge.  This week's winner will receive four images.  Even though I made my card for a girl one of the things I like about the dragons is that they are great for boy's cards too.  So what do you have to do to win this fab prize.  Just make a card or project using Katie's recipe.
This week's recipe is 1.) include some coloring, 2.) try a little curling and 3.) add a circle.
That's pretty easy peasy, even for a lunk head like me who had the card almost completed when I realized I hadn't paid attention to the recipe.  I did color my image and I was ready to attach my lace ribbon flower with the pearl center which would have been a circle but I didn't curl anything.  So, what's a girl to do.  The orange ribbon was already in place and it wouldn't curl anyway.  Then the thunderbolt hit me.  Why not try curling a thin slice of card stock.  Well, it worked and since it's the card stock used for the mats it's a perfect match.  In case you are craft challenged and have no idea how to do this, it's very simple.  Slice a sliver of the card stock and then roll it around a pencil and voila, you've got a curly ribbon.  I stuck a glue dot on the card to attach the ribbons.
So now it's your turn.  I hope to see you play along with us.

Here's the deets:
ink - hp printer
paper - Bazzill "Frosted Teal" and "Glow" CS; Doodlebug "Cake and Ice Cream" dp

  5. Fabulous birthday card. I love those little dragons. Thanks for joining in with our challenge this week over at OSAAT and good luck Julie DT

  6. Love this Chris, & what a brain wave to curl the card tip (not that you asked lol) is to cut the card stock really thinly with a paper trimmer, just take a tiny sliver off & it curls beautifully, so well in fact my daughter can't bear for me to throw them away!! She keeps hoarding them & putting in little pots like those twig/flower arrangements!!

    Fab colours & thanks so much for playing along with Sweet Stampin xx
