For my blog hop creation I used this cute dragon image called "Barts BBQ".
(click on photo's to see larger image)

As most of the time I colored using my Copics. The sentiment (Birthday Letter Seals) and the pennant die is from Whimsy as well. DP is from Basic Grey's Archaic collection. The cherry blossoms are Whimsy Buds and the rest of my embellies is from my stash. 

And here's a closer look on the cute dragon:

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Beate’s blog.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release!
