Meljen's Designs is sponsoring Stamping with the Dragon! :0)

Hi, everyone! I'm so excited....... today is my Stamping With the Dragon debut! For those of you that missed my cries of joy a couple weeks ago (lol!), I am a new design team member for Stamping Dragon Designs. Woohoo! I couldn't be more excited!

Every other Friday, Stamping Dragon Designs posts a challenge on the Stamping With the Dragon Challenge Blog. This week it is a sponsored challenge, and I was so happy when I found out my first card for the blog would be with a Meljen's image! Yay! I just love her great work! She has some wonderful, whimsical images in her new digi store, Meljen's Designs, so stop by and check her out......right after you stop by the Stamping with the Dragon Challenge Blog to post your entry! :0) You have until October 14th to don't want to miss your chance to win! The prize up for grabs for this challenge is  Four Free Images from Meljen's Designs! :0)

Melissa (of Meljen's Designs) provided some great images for the Stamping Dragon Designs DT to work with, and we had to use a "Fall Colors" theme. I chose her Country Scare Crow.

My image is colored in PSE. I've been practicing more with shading in the program. I wasn't sure about the purple on this little guy, but I like it now that he's done. What do you think? For my card, I used some new papers from a K&Company stack called "Fall and Halloween" (not very original for that name, huh?! lol!). I just received some new Spellbinders dies, too, so I used those to cut and emboss my main image, the leaves and the flourishes. A couple of brads from my stash, and some of my favorite fall ribbon from my stash, finish this off!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to stop over at the store to see all the available Stampin' Dragon Designs images, and be sure to check out the rest of the highlights on my fellow DT's blogs for more great inspiration! (Their blog links are all located in the left sidebar of my blog for you! :0)) You should also jump over to the challenge blog for all the details on our current challenge, and don't forget to enter to win! :0)

 I hope you will join me next week for more Stampin' Dragon Designs eye candy! Happy Crafting!
