Puff the Magic Dragon

My mom has always been a fan of Peter, Paul, and Mary, so when I saw that Peter Yarrow was coming to town in May, I knew what to get her for Mother's Day.  I e-mailed the woman in charge about getting tickets and mentioned that they were going to be for Mother's Day.  Imagine my surprise when she e-mailed back inviting us to meet Peter at a restaurant afterwards!

Ever since this came up, I've had the song Puff the Magic Dragon in my head and I wanted to make a card with Puff on it.  Unfortunately, there are not many dragons on the Cricut carts.  There is one on a Paper Dolls cart, but it has no layers.  I decided to use a dinosaur from Create a Critter and attempt to make him look dragon-like.  I cut out a bat from the Holiday Cakes cartridge and cut it in half to make wings.  I cut out some ears and a little spike for the tip of his tail by hand.  I think it worked pretty well, except I'm not completely happy with his face (which I used my Cricut markers on.)  I think she'll get the idea though :)  Because of the musical theme, I ran the white background through the Cuttlebug Allegro folder.  The sentiment was printed from my computer.
