Have a Magical Day

Here's my card for the current challenge at Sunday Stamps.  I used the square layout to create a fun dragon-themed birthday design.

Have a Magical Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Taylored Expressions
I used the layout's large square panel to make a simple scene, starting with an aqua base.  After adding a strip of die cut shimmery white clouds along the bottom, I added a dragon from the Taylored Expressions Magical Day set on top.  I colored the dragon with Copic markers and I meant to add a coating of glitter once I was done, but I forgot to do that before I took the photo . . .  The set's "have a magical day" sentiment was stamped in the upper left corner of the panel. A trio of white sequins arranged around the dragon image filled out the scene. 

I adhered the finished scene to an aqua card base covered with a dotted green patterned paper panel with a narrow darker green cardstock strip across the center.  A pair of fishtail flag strips in two shades of green were added to the top right side of the cardfront to complete the design.

Materials Used:
Magical Day stamp and die combo (Taylored Expressions); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, and Ripe Avocado cardstock, Simply Chartreuse patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); Shimmery White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Landscape Trio dies (Mama Elephant); Fishtail Flag STAX and Fishtail Flag STAX Layers dies (My Favorite Things); white sequins; foam tape
