My Precious

Today’s card is for The Library Challenge where the inspiration is The Hobbit! Squee!

Here is my card:

Rare & Precious Friends | by karen @ carefree creations

I’m fairly certain it is obvious, but my inspiration is Smaug.

I found a free clipart image of a pile of gold coins. I printed it and hand-cut it out. The cute lil dragon was colored with Copics. After that I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. Finding a sentiment so that I could actually use the card, but that made sense with the image was a challenge.

I settled on this sentiment because, well it has the word precious – just couldn’t pass that up! :)

After struggling with how to put it all together, I found the layout in my inspiration file. It is an old Two Peas in a Bucket sketch.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Oh I love this! How wonderful to make the pile of coins. The dragon is cute and beautifully coloured. I know what you mean about the sentiment. I have some lovely stamp sets with great punny sentiments that I cannot imagine ever sending to anyone! Thanks for joining The Library.
