Dragon Singing Carols

It's been a lovely day today. I spent the morning trying to make some cards for my friends at the Saturday group I go to. They look like a gatefold but incorporate a little box which opens as you pull the panels apart. I forgot to scan them, but I do have one here because one of the girls didn't come today. I will try to take some photos to share tomorrow. I took some images to colour but ended up helping Judy packaging up little Christmas Tree earrings she was making to sell at the Cancer Foundation. They are made with acrylic flower beads, a few seed beads and a star. Very cute. I also made a couple of card holders. We used "Pringle" tins and took off the ends and then wound variegated wool around them. This is what holds the cards. She then decorates a piece of card to sit on the top. They are very handy to keep cards in for birthdays, Christmas, etc.
Here is today's card.
The basecard is green card from my stash. The DP is by Cosmo Cricket, Jolly by Golly: Sweater Weather. On one side it is green with snowflakes and on the other stripes, which is what I chose to use for this card.
The image is another digi freebie and is this very cute dragon carol singing. I must try and remember to type the site name next to the image when I save it. I forget and just hit save and the artist hasn't put their name on them. (Editing post thanks to Gail, she has pointed me to where this little dragon comes from) It is one from Dustin Pike: Doodle Dragon and you can find them here
I coloured the image with Copic Markers.
I stamped the sentiment in Real Red from SU onto white card and punched out with a 1" circle and then punched a 1 1/4" scalloped circle in green. The green one is adhered flat and the sentiment circle is popped up with a foam dot.
Well, it's goodnight from me, hope you are enjoying your weekend.
