PWC117: Another great sketch...

As usual, for the first Wednesday of the month we have an amazing sketch from Frances! I had an idea brewing around in my head and I couldn't not do it...although I'm not sure this sketch was the best to use for this idea - but Julia loves it so I hope you will too!
This week, Paper Pretties is sponsoring the Oh Alice Challenge which is to use a little girl on your card (and you still have time to enter to win a great prize package from Paper Pretties!!). Think we have any of those at Paper Pretties?? LOL! therefore, I had to use a Sophia image. I also wanted to use this adorable new dragon though...because I mean...WHO WOULDN'T??? So, I decided to combine our bookworm, daydreaming Story Time Sophia along with this adorable new Dragon set, Imagine. Once Julia understood that the dragon was in the book Sophia was reading, she thought it was way cool - although she did ask why the book had a tree on it if it was about a what age do all the questions stop??
I paper pieced the dark purple parts of the dragon with some paper form the same stack of Eva Basic Grey paper as the background. It's intricate cutting, but well worth the effort!! I colored her wings with my spica pens, and her tummy with my copics.
Be sure to head on over to the Paper Pretties blog to get info on how you can play along with this week's challenge and link up your entry. You'll love playing with this sketch, I guarantee it!
