Stamping Dragon Designs Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Whoo Hoo! It's time for the final event to wrap up the week of Birthday celebrations with Stamping Dragon Designs. We had a wonderful time celebrating Janette's (the owner) birthday and hopefully you have all had a blast playing along with the design team in the fun contests to celebrate! If you missed out on any events, you still have time to play in the "Name the paper pack and win it" contest and the "Guess How Many" contest.

Now it is time for the big event. The birthday blog hop! Many of our design team are offering blog candy.. Some may be posted in their hop post. Some may be a mystery, so you will have to leave us all some love (comments), in order to win! Just hop along to all our blogs and leave us a comment to celebrate the birthday, for your chance to win some great prizes! Please remember, that in order to win, you MUST comment on every blog in the hop AND become a follower of Stamping Dragon Designs.

In celebration of Stamping Dragon Designs birthday, and the birthday of Janette herself, Janette created this special digi stamp above. This wonderful image is called Rupert's Birthday. Right now, for a limited time only, you can get this image for your very own, for just 99 cents, in the store.

Now, let me show you what I did with this awesome image. Here is my card, below, created especially to celebrate the birthdays of Janette and Stamping Dragon. I had fun coloring this fabulous image with Copic Markers, then mounted it to designer paper from the Paper Studio. I punched my edges with the Martha Stewart Scalloped Border punch, and my ribbon is from Michael's. My sentiment is a Dollar Store stamp and I stamped it with Marvy black ink and finished the card off with green rhinestones.
