ye old dragons

well here is one card i have made for lewis`s 5th birthday ~used the great sketch over on the "high hopes "challenge and also followed the challenge over on "my time to craft" which is "going for gold", ~to used gold on your card.
used this fab high hopes image and words from my dear friend jo (onlyjoking), basicgrey archaic papers , loads of gold card, gold word stickers from my stash and lots of gold glitter ~need to click on pic to see it!!
wasn`t so pleased with my colouring of this dragon ~but heyho sure lewis won`t mind!!
we have just got in, been out all day shopping for pauls birthday pressies ~about to make his new computer chair now, (after a nice hot cup of tea!!)
hope you all having a good valentines day and having a great weekend. byeeeee xx

Great Card Vanessa!
Is it framed in gold leafing? If so, Is it a pen or flakes? It's so nice, bright and shiny. It looks awesome!
I have always struggled with kids cards. Thank you for the inspiration.

Now I have to stop this and get to bed. It's 2:20 AM here. This blogging thing is bad for my health! LOL

P.S. Super Music....Thanks.
