My Grrrrriffic Valentine

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Regal Kisses, Bravo for my color combo. I just love this cute little dragon which is part of a set called "My Favorite Valentine" and can be found at H & M STAMP COMPANY. I stamped it 2 times, colored, cut out and popped up the head and the card on the full cut out image. The card in the dragon's hand is also stamped, colored and popped up. I applied stickles to the heart. My image was colored using my prismacolor pencils, blended with gamsol. My sentiments were stamped in regal rose and bravo burgand. I punched the regal rose sentiment out using the word window punch and popped it up. I found some dp that was a close match to regal rose in argyle print and some glitter dp as well so I used them. I also found some really kewl 2 sided ribbon that was a close match to burgand and kiwi. WOW what luck this morning. HOpe the rest of my day is as lucky especially since I have to work 3/11 tonight.
