Papertake Weekly - Bingo Time with The Ribbon Girl!

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and this week it's BINGO!! We are being sponsored by the awesome Mary and Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl!  Here's your BINGO card


And here is my card. I used Die Cuts, Free, and Glitter (Stickles)


I've been just waiting to be able to color this adorable image #411 Lillyrose the Dragon from the new Magnolia Collection Princes and Princesses 2012! I just think she's so CA-UTE!!! And she's available right now over at Magnolia-licious for the best price and the best service!! She's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers.


I used YG90's for the body and E13, 17, and 19  for her spots, and E41, 43, and 44 for her claws and fangs.  The papers are Basic Grey and the layers are all machine stitched.


I also added some pearls in dark brown with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen. I colored up two of Lillyrose, so I decided I might as well use the second one on the inside.

I did a real "no-no" in my own personal book of "things I don't want to do when I make a card". I didn't machine stitch the inside of my card.  I always refuse to not stitch the inside if I stitch the card front. But I'm running behind in DT work, so decided this one time would be ok. But now I'm not feeling right about it. *sigh* Oh well...everything is glued down and there's no lifting it up now. So it will just have to do.  So how about you? Do you always stitch the inside if you stitch the card front? Am I the only one that is so anal about the whole thing?


So that's it for me today. Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the gorgeous designs my teamies have created for you viewing pleasure. Then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us for a chance to win a fabulous prize from The Ribbon Girl!! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

I have entered this into the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - use green

Sharon, she is adorable! Love the colors you chose and the paper is perfect! I would not have noticed the lack of stitching on the inside. Bet no one else would have either :)

Sandy said...

I love the design and colors on this card Sharon and you have colored Mr. Dragon beautifully. Why does he look a little sad - OH! I know why - you didn't stitch the inside of the card. He'll get over it I guarantee it! Besides, you left his tail out so a little air could get in. They do get a little stinky sometimes. I like you card!
Sandy

Sandy said...

Oh, one more thing sugar -- I called it a he - you called it a she. Now I have studied this dragon from top to bottom and I cannot tell if it is a he or she. What is the secret - do tell.
