Dragon Birthday

This month our challenge theme is "My Favourite Things". I have gone through my High Hopes stamps and the website and have chosen stamps that represent my favourite things and I will share a different my favourite thing each week.

This week my card brings back memories of camping with my family when I was younger. We always had a campfire - love a campfire! - at night and toasted marshmallows, made spider wieners or even the odd time had a hamburger made over the fire...maybe not the best bedtime snack but boy were they good! My nephew loves to build a fire and toast marshmallows too so I thought these stamps were perfect for his birthday card! He is turning 16 so I had to do something teenage and masculine - yikes!




I started by colouring my stamps with alcohol markers and hand fussy cutting them out. I cut my white cardstock piece and placed my circle die where I wanted it cut out. Next I placed my sentiment and with the help of my Misti, it is perfectly positioned. I added some night starry sky patterned paper behind the circle and some glittery gumdrops to finish off my card. The dragon is also popped up with foam pop dots just for fun.
