A Gem Of A Challenge ~ DT Card

Good morning everyone....I hope you are all well. 

Today is my first post as part of the DT at A Gem Of A Challenge 
and I'm so excited about it.

Today is the start of a new challenge and Christine has designed this fabulous sketch for you to follow.


Here is my take on the sketch using one of the lovely images from Pink Gem Designs

I have used Dragon Josh from Pink Gem cute is this little chap!!!
I have coloured using Promarkers and the papers are Archaic from BasicGrey. The sentiment is from LOTV and the pearls are from The Hobby House. I have added a selection of buttons from my button stash....I couldn't decide which ones to use so I just piled them up on top of each other. 

I have to confess to making a mess of colouring his little dragon wings so I coloured the wings on another image, cut them out and decoupaged them over the can't see very well in this photo but it worked quite well.

Don't forget to pop over to the main blog and have a look at all the wonderful cards my new friends on the DT have created.
