Tuesday challenge and Top Tip!

Dog on it!  It's Tuesday again!  I almost forgot to share the new challenge information over at the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge because it's not my week to inspire :(  Well, I've decided to inspire you all anyway!  On my blog at least. :)  This week ,(Carol) is sharing a tutorial with you.
However, this tutorial is a little different...

I made a card from this super cute Wild Rose Dragon image I received from my great crafting friend Holley for being her special numbered follower (can't remember if it was 100 or 200? )  Anyway, when I made this little card, I intended it to go to the Smile 4 kids donation so I'm forwarding it there in August with my other cards!

I colored this originally with copics and the face of the image didn't come out the way it should have (sometimes blushing the cheeks doesn't work), so I played a tricky and covered the entire body of the dragon with Stickles.  Not a waste after all!

On to the details of my newest piece of greeting art. But before I do, Don't forget to hop over to Top Tip Tuesday for the New "Shaped" cards challenge. It starts today and is sponsored by Stamp 'n Create & Pink Cat Studio and
