Dragon Wedding

As it is Wednesday again, it's time for another another challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog,
It seems like that Sketch hadn't be to everyone's taste... even though I thought it was an easy one. Although we only had a few entries, some of them had been amazing!!!


Our theme for this week is Weddings/Anniversaries. This should be easier for everyone. So I am looking forward to your amazing entries...


Our sponsors for this challenge are:

Stamping Dragon Designs


prize - 5 digi images of winners choice

and

Scrappers Delights

Prize - 3 digi images of winners choice

and 

Crafty Sentiments
prize - 3 digi images of winners choice


As usual, we got some lovely images from our sponsors to play with. I used a Stamping Dragon image for my card...
I loved this cute stamp as soon as I saw it the first time...



Stamp: "Ruperts Wedding" from Stamping Dragon Designs
Sentiment: WordArt
Pigment Ink Pad in white & light blue
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell, Joy Crafts Decorative Chalks
Sketch: Sketch Saturday
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Sizzix Framelits
Punches: Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page
Stickles, pearls, mulberry paper, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.


I am entering the card in the following challenges: 

totally papercrafts challenge 126 - inspiration photo challenge  (I used the colours cream & blue out of the photo  -  my blue is a bit darker though)
sketch saturday challenge 217 - Sketch
sentimental sundays challenge 112 - things with wings
incy wincy designs challenge - let's party
abc challenge - t for two (2 dragons, 2 hearts, 2 colours)
southern girls challenge 49 - angels or fantasy
just hanna stamps challenge 150 - wir feiern / we celebrate

sparkles forum challenge 34 - wedding
inky impressions challenge - use dies or punches
forever friends fortnightly challenge 41 - anything goes


As Forever Friends would like to see a card that I made in my early crafting days, I am showing you my first card with a stamped image (digi stamp) I have made at the beginning of last year. I know, it's not that old yet, but that's when I started stamping... I didn't have any dies back then, so everything is hand-cut!

  11. Beautiful new card, I love the layout and that image is sooo cute! and in fairness your old card isn't that bad! Great colour scheme anyway :) I think everyone's cards get better when they invest in new equipment and whatnot anyway :)
