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