"You May Bow"

This was a fun card to make.  I love this castle and I love making the clouds.   Castle + Clouds = Fun.
The little dragon looks like a happy chap.  We all know someone who this sentiment would be perfect for, everyone is so busy these days and dragging or is that "Dragon"?  ~grin~
Be sure and check out  the Mark's Finest Paper team's card on the Blog.   The more you comment on the blogs, the better chance you have of winning.  Be sure and come back tomorrow to see another new set showcased.

  1. That first card is a big WOW!! Love the background and your coloring and shading.

  2. Your first card is so pretty! I really like the two embossed panels behind the image. And, the image is colored wonderfully - your clouds are always awesome!! Your second monochromatic card is so adorable! The little dragon looks awesome in green against green! I love them both!
