Laughter in the Rain

I had so much fun with this card.  The background was made by sponging ink on a piece of large plastic ribbon.  I'd had it for ages and just came up with this idea.  I thought it went so well with the dragon's spots.  They kind of remind me of dragon scales.  What do you think?  I also love  his bright yellow skin.  I've always coloured my dragons green so I really enjoyed the change.  This is going to open up some possibilities.  The flowers were coloured with copics.  I just love this technique!  I'll never buy anything but white from now on.  The dragonflies were given to me by my friend.  They are from a Creative Memories punch.  I tend to be careful of using dragonflies on my cards since they have been adopted by the palliative care society here in BC.  I sometimes worry about sending an unintended message.  My mother would be so offended by having a dragonfly on her card - as if I was wishing ill.
What I really like about this card is that without a sentiment and with such bright colours it can be used for so many purposes:  birthday, encouragement or just because.
