Dragons egg

A Few years ago i made three of these. One mainly for my son as he loves dragons
the cage originally had Christmas decorations in it and it worked perfectly for a cage for the egg. Made this using stamps from some assembly required (but lucky they also have dies for this egg now to make things lot easy to make them) and added legs , tails, arms and head to make it be a dragon

Many thanks

Stamps are alota rubberstamp for the bug pulling strawberries and papertrey for the words

Not until it is finished !

While making this card i kept looking at it and giving up on it as i did not like it, but it did keep calling me back so i kept at it and when it was fully finished i was so glad that i did finish it as the finished card does look a lot better than the many times that i was going to stop making it as i did not like it
The stamps used are stampin up for the back ground , unknown for the lettering and judikins for the big robot

What are bargan!
