Dreamy dragon...

Good afternoon, everyone!  Hope your start to the week is going well and that the weather is being kind to you!  Snow's gone...thank goodness, but it's still nowhere near Spring!  Despite this, my card is very Spring inspired in it's colour combo...
...I paid a visit to the Wee Stamps store and just had to have this gorgeous Dreamy Dragon...isn't he adorable?!  I could have spent a fortune, but was quite well restrained - I'll be back again next week, mind!  The papers are from First Edition Boho Chic (love this paper pad!) and the sketch I followed is the current challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday...
...I coloured the Dreamy Dragon with my Promarkers in the same colour tones as the papers and here's the info :
Main Body - Ivory, Vanilla, Sandstone, a touch of Caramel
Spikes - Light Fawn FM, Soft Peach, Honeycomb
Wings & Belly - Soft Aqua FM, Aquamarine FM, Duck Egg
Tree - Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa
Flowers - Tea Rose FM, Watermelon FM
Shadow - Aniseed FM
The little butterfly die arrived in the post this afternoon (it's one of the Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterflies, just lovely!) so it had to be added straight away!  I think these will be showing up on more projects in the future, they are just such a nice size and so delicate too...
...I decorated the inside of my card to match with the line image and some of the patterned paper...
...I finished with some Glamourdust and some lovely champagne gold pearls.  I love the soft, but fresh colour tones of this card, very Springlike, I think - if only Mother Nature would make the weather the same!?!
A big 'Hi!' to my newest followers and welcome to my little blog!  Thanks for dropping in and I'll see you all soon, Lisa x
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Anything Goes

Anything Goes (Happy Birthday CCT!!)
