A flower for you! (BLOG CANDY)

With the recent posting issue, I have decided to leave this card on top for an additional day. This is the newest card for Sweet Pea and is the most current posting with blog candy attached to it!! Be sure to leave a comment, even if you have won, as this is a new contest :)

Here's a Sweet Pea dragon from Lisa Victoria's newest release on Plate #117. This image is called Butterfly Dragon. Isn't he the cutest? I knew I had to get this stamp as soon as I saw him. He comes with an adorable fairy girl and a smaller sized dragon stamp.

I used some wonderful papers from Wild Asparagus and K&Company to make the background and cut out the colored image with Spellbinders. I used some doodlebug ribbon and paper borders with a wonderful embossed prima flower as the final touch. Just leave a comment to be eligible for blog candy--if you see you name on the winners list, drop me an email with your address!! ( Dragon Hugs!
