Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Sponsored by The Paper Shelter

Long time, no hear, hum?  Some times life slows you down and you have absolutely no say so in it.  I've not been feeling well lately and my body told me it's just had enough.  I sucked it up and went to the clinic and come to find out, I had a double ear infection and strep throat.  It brought me right down to my knees.  Just now am I starting to feel just a little bit like a human but no where near what I need to feel like.  Believe me, I'll live, but I've just got to take better care of myself.

Today, I'm so excited to be back with Tuesday Throwdown because we're being sponsored by one of my favorite shops, The Paper Shelter!  Love, simply adore all their stuff and their images are just too stinkin cute!  Our theme this week is Fantasy and I knew exactly what image I wanted to use.  My daughter, Nichole, has got me interested in the series "Game of Thrones" and one of my favorite characters is Daenerys Targaryen, who is known as the Mother of Dragons.  When I saw The Dragon Whisperer, I thought about her!

Isn't she fabulously fearless?!  She's colored with copics and I used stickles on her blouse and the dragon.  I used my clear gel pen on her outfit, hair and the dragon.  The papers are from the Once Upon A Time paper stack from DCWV and she's cut out with Nestabilities.  I sprayed some iridescent glitter spray on the background and added some Scattered Straw Distressed Ink around her edges.  The ribbon is from Offray, the glass gem spray and gems are from my stash.

I love all the detail in this cutie pie and I adore her ears!  I'm entering her in the following challenges:
