Make the Best of Your Day Card

I made this card for someone special that needs a little cheering up!  This little Lisa Victoria stamp reminds me of playing in the rain when I was little.  I can rememer being barefoot and splashing into the puddles.  I didn't realize until I finished this card that all my "boy" cards seem to have a green theme...lol.  I made sure to give this little dragon some narly bumps by running him thru my cuttlebug, no coloring I paper pieced him and highlighted the mushroom umbrella.  I entered him into the following challenges:
Everything came from my stash.  Here's what I used to create my card:
  • Cricut & Gypsy to cut cartoche (Paisley Cart)
  • Cuttlebug & Swiss Dot's Embossing Folder
  • Lisa Victoria Stamp & Sentiment
  • SU Markers used on Mushroom Umbrella & Puddle
  • Green Ribbon & 3 Buttons
  • Martha Stewart Corner Punch
Thanks for looking, comments much appreciated.
