Birthday Dragon

So I have started a new church and decided to make a Birthday card for a lady there that I think needed a little lift ..So I used this Dragon from Karens Doodles and Inside i used Huggable Hank from High Hopes ..I colored with copics ..Made my flowers and i did something I havent done is Actually stitch on my card ..I usually use faux sticking ..Its kinda neat ..I wanted it to be bright and cheary..And have an eliment of surpize so when you open it Hank pops up, Giving her many hugs .
I had a very wonderful Person help me with where to put the dark shadows and Highlights as Im so not there yet ..So Missy you know who you are Many Thanks ..

Here is the upclose of the Birday Dragon from Karens Doodles ..I added glossy accents to the table top to make it look like a glass table

Here is the Inside of the card using Huggable Hank ( High Hopes )as a POP up and after I took this picture I also added Happy Birthday Sticker on the pocket to make it look more complete..Also I made little cards for each person so they could send there own message to Michelle and put in pocket ..

So we have started a New Church " Clavery Chapel" I use to go to one in Co and thought all was lost when we couldnt find a church here so I gave up going to church and was pretty sad about it too . But God showed us this one and Now we are happy campers hahah YEAAAAAAAAA
Anyway we went to a barbaeque they had and it was so nice ..we havent been around people in along time and were very lonely ..These people have no idea , NONE how much that day meant to us ...

Bird Box

I know it's been awhile Im slow I guess ..Here is a 4 drawer box I made with Easel card on top ..I love this one so much ..I used my copics to color . the stamp is from I Brake for Stamps , I made the bird in the corner from my wool I have in my stash and added a silk ribbion stitch on it with a pearl ..I used pink glitter on scroll and tea dyed lace under the bird ..
its an easel card so it lies flate or up right nice would it be to get something like that in the mail with little goodies like buttons or ribbions , lace even a chocolate or two ..haha
I do believe this will go up in my Esty shop and if anyone would like a kit I would sell that as well , so you can add your ow touches ..
