Dragon Birthday


I saw this challenge on KL Stampin N Scrappin Blog on Saturday and thought, "hum, that's looks like fun!" I've never used a dragon on a card, but had seen Dustin Pike's work before on Digital Tuesday Challenge blog and was intrigued. I grabbed some of his freebies and this seemed like the perfect time to give it a whirl. I haven't met many girls that are fans of dragons but the color challenge at Cute Card Thursday #95 called to me so here it is in all it's pink and grey glory! Layout is from Paper Sundaes (check out their new challenge blog!). A couple of places had birthday challenges and although I missed the deadline for one (The Pink Elephant #49), I think I'm still good on the other (Makeup 4 the Weekend #12). Oh yeah, I totally missed it, but Cupcake Craft Challenge #73 was "going girly" thought this fit anyway! Here's some more pics of this creation.



TFL and hope you have a great rest of the week! Aloha, Kim

Really like the combo of pink and gray, makes for an elegant card, yet so cute with the dragon! Wonderful card, one that anyone receiving it would appreciate (hint,hint!)

Ohhh, I am a "big girl" who loves dragons! :) lol This is sweet! Maybe a young TomBoy would like this image with the pink to "keep it girly." Either way, I think you did a fabulous job combining the challenges, and your coloring of the dragon is superb. Thanks for joining us over at KL Stampin N Scrappin! We are thrilled you could participate in our challenge. Hugs, Kelly L
