Lillyrose the Dragon

Today I have made a card called a Peek-a-Boo card. I got the pattern from Norma's blog. She is so good at doing tutorials and this one I really loved making.
The paper I used is from The Paper Shelter and is one of their digi packs called 'Vintage flower for you'.
I also used the Spellbinders ovals and scalloped ovals.
The little mini dragon is from the Princes and Princesses Magnolia stamp collection. She is called Lillyrose. I think she is really cute. I made this card for my sister's birthday. she loves dragons so this was ideal for her card.
I coloured Lillyrose with my ShinHan twin brush markers.
Here are some photo's.

The angles of the photo's were a bit hard to take.
You can find the Tutorial on Norma's blog and see her lovely creation.

Beautiful card, Maz.
Your paper is wonderful and you have coloured Lilyrose so well.
I still don't know what Shinhan brushes are or were to see them.

Hi Maz! Well can you believe it, I've had your blog page up on my screen for at least an hour :D and with your great links to Norma and from hers elsewhere I've been all over the place ha ha!!

Love your gorgeous card, such a wonderful technique and so expertly shown by Norma and great how your second panel is the sentiment.

I love your colouring on LilyRose and that touch of pink on her is wonderful. Such pretty paper and of course your flowers are pure magic. Bet your Sister adored it too.

Hope you're both doing well and wishing you a lovely rest of the weekend. Hugs, Chris x
