Christmas Dragons

Here it is mid-October already!  So, it's time for our mid-month inspiration post from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  Here is my inspiration for you:
As soon as MFT released these ADORABLE dragons, I knew I HAD to have them.  Luckily, my sister fell in love with them, too, and she convinced my husband to buy them for my birthday last month (I think she actually ordered them, but that's beside the point).  Of course, I needed to use them as soon as possible, so Christmas Dragons they became.  Red and green are Christmas colors and that makes these cuties Christmas-y right?  I added clear Wink of Stella pen on their wings, because dragons must have sparkly wings.

If you haven't gotten the chance to play along with us yet, you still have a couple weeks.  I really do hope you will join us, I love being inspired by what you create.

Supplies:
Stamps: MFT "Magical Dragons"; Verve "Merry & Bright" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle; Verve "Border Trim Trio" star border
Cuttlebug: Snowflake embossing folder

Heather: Well, I can now say that I've met my very first red dragon. And he sure is cute! You did a fantastic job on this sweet card. I really like the glittery accent on his wings. I always SO enjoy your art, and appreciate you taking the time to play along with us at Word Art Wednesday. I hope you're having a great week, and if you get a minute I'd love to have you visit my blog to say hello.
Blessings,
