Dragon and bluebells

    Today sees the start of a new challenge at Aud Sentiments. The theme is spring and the challenge is being sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps.
    About the middle of spring the bluebells in my garden and local woods start making an appearance so I decided to use this sweet digi from Lee Holland called 'Dragon smelling bluebells' - not at all influenced by my daughter who is mad about dragons and dinosaurs! - and coloured it using Promarkers. I used dies from various companies to cut out the diamond shapes. The surrounding bluebells were cut using Carnation Crafts bluebells die and downloadable vignettes and adding some additional colour to the leaves using Promarkers so that they matched those in my image.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Catz - anything goes with in the garden
