A Birthday Flyby

First things first... Happy Easter :)

There are oodles of bunnies around at the minute and I myself have featured them on a few cards and I needed a rest from cute and cuddly and have opted for cute and scaly for todays card.

A new challenge is open at Fusion and for this card I've managed to fuse both the inspiration photo and sketch into one card (unusual for me).  OK, the photo doesn't feature a dragon, it features a bunny so I picked out the colours.

I stencilled the clouds onto a separate piece of cardstock and cut out the triangle, as I don't measure anything, I randomly cut my card at angles then reassembled.  Scorch, my newly named MFT Magical Dragon has been coloured using alcohol pens and die cut using the matching dies.  The clouds are MB puffy clouds and just lightly inked before attaching with a mixture of tape and 3D foam, the sentiment is from the stamp set.
