 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Zoo Friends"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"You May Bow"

Today's Feature is "Honor and Glory".  I decided to create this for a relative that plays Ultima Online.   I hope he likes my take on his game play!  

The ivy is from a previously released stamp set from MFP a HC  called, "Ivy and Blossoms".

I tucked some leaves underneath the circle window and on the top layer as well for some fun dimension.

I stamped a second wing and attached it at the top, curling the lower tip of the wing upwards.

The inside:  I do not usually color the insides but the shield image cried out for a little color.  After adding the color to the shield I added just a touch of green to the leaves at the top of the circle. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you leave a comment on my blog and my teammate's blogs you will be in the drawing to win today's stamp set!

  24. This card is so pretty and I love the ivy! It reminds me of Disney's Sleeping Beauty when Prince Charming has to cut through all of the vines to get to the princess (my favourite Disney movie, lol). The dragon is the perfect green! :)
