Meet Lilyrose, the Dragon!

Hello sweet readers,

March is quickly winding down. Another month has flown by! I have a card to share with you which features Lilyrose, the Dragon.
I thought this stamp was just too cute! I wanted to use it on a card for a little boy. Here it is:



This little card features copper accents and twine. It's hard to see, but there is a strip of punched vellum beneath the green twill ribbon. It matches the shadowed figures on the paper. I accented Lilyrose with glitter in three shades of green. I also chose to put a pale orange crocheted doily behind her. I added a Brontosaurus charm (even though Lilyrose is a dragon), just for fun!

Here are closeups of the card's interior. I chose to keep it VERY basic. I'm experimenting, LOL.







I decided to use my scalloped pennant dies. I prefer these over my Nestie set of pennant dies because of the little holes in each scallop. I use both sets, but prefer the set with the little holes. I did pop these up on pop dots. I used orange and white baker's twine to suspend them.

I hope you like this little card. I am such a dinosaur lover and the dragon stamp immediately won my heart. If you have a little dinosaur lover in your life, I have a card for you!

XO,
Chris
