Great catch Valentine

I've been searching for something to "perch" my cards on for a long time.  Just something that wouldn't be noticed but would elevate my card to capture the best light.  Then it hit me, the top of a scented candle jar would be perfect!  It's glass and not too high and I have tons since I can't bring myself to throw out the jars when the candle is gone.  This card is based on Verve's first sketch for January.  I used the digi stamp Great Catch from Whimsie Doodles to make the card.
One Crazy Stamper is also hosting a colour challenge Red/White + One other colour and would you look at that my dragon is red and pink on a white background. 
You can find all the sketch challenge details HERE.
