Really Reasonable Ribbon/Whimsy Challenge Starts Today!!!!!

Hello Everyone! 
Happy New Year!

Today we start a brand new year so I thought that a great challenge theme would be "Something New Plus Ribbons".
All you have to do is create a card or project with something new and ribbon, and head over to Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings and join us in this fun challenge. Be sure to read the simple rules so you can be entered into the drawing for one of the prizes offered by RRR and Whimsy Stamps.
Now I know all of my crafty friends had to have received something new in your stocking to craft with. Or perhaps you got in on some of the great deals that the big craft stores had running. It would be fun if when posting about your card that you tell us what new item you used!

I am using a new (to me anyhow) digi called "Dragon's Little Friend" that MelJen has to offer over @ Whimsy Stamps. I think her images are all just too sweet!  :)
The designer paper is new too. It was a gift to myself...hard to resist using 50% off coupons and free shipping @ Joann's! LOL!

The DP stack is My Mind's Eye's ~ "Summer Song".
The gorgeous ribbon is Green Glitz, my all time fave from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
That pretty shimmery pink cardstock is Azalea Mica Metallic from The Paper Temptress. The base is her Heavenly White.

I popped the dragon, then popped his wing for added dimension then covered him in Diamond Stickles to match the ribbon.

I made the sentiment on my computer.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
I hope to see you and your project in the RRRR "Something New" challenge!

True :D

True, I know this isn't part of the Tag Your It blog hop, but when I saw this AWESOME, Cool looking card, I was captivated. GREAT...how did you sew this with one of those lil hand machines or a regular sewing machine?
