Birthday Card Using Conie Fong Tori The Dragon - Up and CTMH products

Hello friends!  It has turned cold over most of US and especially the East coast and the south; even in FL.  Brrrrr!   I feel guilty for our hot weather.  It is supposed to be 79 today.  It is hard to believe it is so cold everywhere else.  I hope it warms up soon for everyone who is cold right now.

I created this adorable Conie Fong "Tori the Dragon - Up" for one of my great-grandsons birthday.  I tried not to use anything too small for embellishments.  I am always worried about small children choking on things.  I thought it turned out very cute; even without tiny embellishments.
