Southern Girls First Challenge

Well the day has come and the Southern Girls Challenge Blog is in full swing. The design team has been divided into 2 groups and my first official challenge starts on Sept 23rd but I just had to play along with this challenge. Lou and Tracy have lined up some amazing sponsors with some great prizes. So make sure you check it out and play along especially in the first challenge, it's "Anything Goes" so there is nothing holding you back. :)

The image I used on this card is a *Wink *Wink Ink digi image (who btw is one of this week's sponsors at Southern Girls) called Jewel. I fell in love with this little dragon as soon as I saw it and knew I had to make a card with it. I used the Once Upon a Time stack from DCWV, I think it was a good fit.

Copics used:
Skin: YG95, YG93, YG91, R20
Eyes: YR24, YR23, YR21
Nails: W5, W3
Diamond: YG91, C1, Stickles
Shadowing: C1

Challenges I'm putting this card in:

Southern Girls - Anything Goes
Lollipop Crafts - Monsters & Such
Stampin With The Dragon - The Eyes Have It
Sisterhood of Crafters - 1 Ribbon, 2 Designer Papers, 3 Flowers
Paper Pretties - Use Brads or Eyelets
Cupcake Craft - Books & Stories
Lexi's Creations - Flower Power
Paper Playtime - Castles, Knights & Damsels in Distress
