Not Your Typical Anniversary Card

This past Sunday was mine and my husband's wedding anniversary. I wanted to make him a card for our anniversary and I got to thinking that he has seen all of my 'guy' stamps, so I wasn't sure what to do. So I had to do some thinking on that one! I also wanted the card to be special-something just for him. Eric collects dragons like the ones from the Bradford Exchange and I thought it would be really fun to make him a card with a dragon. I know not your typical anniversary card! My next thought was how do you make a card with a dragon and still find the romance? Well here is what I came up with.~I found the picture of the dragon and printed it out. Then I covered it with micro beads and added some rhinestones for some bling! I had a pattern for flames and I did some airbrushing with the Copic markers and the ABS to add the colors. Then cut out the flames and outlined them using the black Spica glitter pen. I also added a little hardware and ribbon along with the sentiment.

Here is a close up of the dragon.~
Now for the inside of the card. Here is where the 'romance' comes in! lol!! I put a poem on the left side and another sentiment on the right. I also did a little more airbrushing on the inside of the card.I am happy to say He LOVED it!!
