Scrappy Frogs Challenge - Arrrgh!

I've got to apologize because I thought for sure that this posted but I was so wrong. And I loved working on this cutie! I've fallen in love with two things - digital backgrounds, Dustin Pike and dragons! OK, so it's three and I can't count, but when Scrappy Frogs's Challenge Blog gave us a pirate background by the generous and talented Dustin Pike to work with for our challenge, I thought I'd pull out a Cat's Pajama set that I got and have been dying to play with, but this sweet dragon defending his ship stole my heart! I'm now a convert of the dinausaur family!

All of these sweeties are from Dustin Pike's blog and are digital stamps. I love them because you just print and color! How much simplier can you ask for? I colored the background with copics and the barrel, box and dragon with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I added some gold Smooch and some Spica Glitter and Glossy Accents and thought it was just right. I used Scrapper's Floss instead of ribbon because I liked the rustic look it gave and put a button rather than tying a bow for this. I distressed the edges and used my SU picture tab punch for the corners. Remember, I've been around girls for too long so bear with me while I'm going for the rough and tough look! And I did get to use my Cat's Pajama's set for the sentiment. Just love this card!

Make sure you stop over at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog and see the fun creations my design team buddies came up with! What fun we all had using this background! So make sure to take part in the challenge for a fantastic prize! And Froggy, feel better! We miss you terribly!
