Happy Birthday Dragon!

I always find it hard to make cards for males. I just find it so hard to resist the urge to add flowers and glitter to everything! I have had a go anyway and this was the result. My dragon stamp is 'Auroa' designed by Lisa Victoria from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have coloured him with copics. I cut my tag out on my Cricut and my embossed sentiment is a stamp from Hooked On Craft. I have used Spellbinders dies called 'lacey squares' to cut out my background squares behind my stamp.

Let me know what you think!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

- Sweet Sketch Wednesday; Sketch #99
- Creative Craft Challenges; Recycled. The strips of blue paper on my card are made from recyled paper
