Lily Rose says Thanks

Thought I would do something a bit different for the current Marvelous Magnolia's Challenge #58, which is an Anything Goes challenge. Instead using a Tilda stamp, I pulled out this gorgeous Lily Rose the dragon stamp from Magnolia to use as a thank you card for my friend Red, who collects dragons and I know will love it! I'm also entering this card into Papertake Weekly's Challenge Pick of the Year, in which we had to pick a challenge from the last year to (re)do so I picked their Giving Thanks challenge from  November.

And here's my Lily Rose - isn't she just a sweetie?! Went with a bright, funky colour scheme as well as red isn't really a pinky kind of girl, but I know she'll like this one! I kept the embellishments to a minimum as well as I wanted Lily and the banner to take centre-stage as it were.  Love how this one came out!
