Big Dreams to you!

Hey everyone!  Hope you are doing well on this Wednesday evening.  I have been running around the house getting chores done.   I would much rather have been sitting and creating but laundry, trash, and dishes were waiting for me. Not complaining because it keeps moving up and down the stairs and the Pumpkin Spice donut was calling me earlier today at Wegman's.  Yeah I ate one on the way home.  I couldn't help myself.  Hanging head in shame.  I think the sugar gave me the energy to complete two loads of laundry and empty the trash bins.  Not to mention the motivation to make dinner. Ugghhh.  Did not want to think about it but my family needs to eat. 
Okay so my card for today was a card I created on Monday.  This week Meljen's is sponsoring us at Crafty Creations with digital images.  The theme is fairy tales and fables.  I chose the sleeping dragon entitled, "Cuddle Dragon" to work with.  City Crafter Challenges is featuring digis this week so wanted to join in!


I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges by Silke Ledlow. Silke's card for this is jaw dropping beautiful!   You have to see it for yourself!
I printed the image on green and white cardstock. I highlighted with a dark green marker then cut it out and adhered to the image.  I filled in the rest of the image and added a few highlights to the flourishes.  I used Stickles on his wings for a touch sparkle.  I framed it on a turquoise cardstock for the Digi Tuesday challenge..  As you can see, I stitched with a light blue thread which is  Crafty Cardmaker's challenge this week.

Challenges for my card:

City Crafter Challenge: #29 "Get Your Digi On!"
Crafty Cardmaker's: #33 "Stitching"
Crafty Creations:#92  "Fairy Tales and Fables"
Crazy 4 Challenges: Sketch
Digi Tuesday :#83  "I've been Framed"

Have a great evening!
