Dragon's Birthday Gift

Here's another challenge card. This one is for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #492: Green. I will be going to my first Kraftin' Kimmie stamping/scrapbooking retreat this year. I have a few Kraftin' Kimmie sets and one is these Darling Dragons. Dragons + Green works perfectly for this challenge entry!

I used Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch # 325 for this card. I added a little gift from the dragon using a stamp in a Hello Bluebird set of stamps that I have.

I used a scrap strip of patterned paper. The sketch called for a bigger piece at the bottom but my strip was narrower. I chose to place it higher and border it with two 1/8th strips of metallic black cardstock. I used my 1/8th strip cutting die from Accucut Craft to make the strips perfect.

I coloured this dragon with Copic markers and also added the iridescent medium to its spine and tummy. I used a Sakura sparkly pink gel pen on the gift's ribbon.

I masked the gift first and then stamped the dragon after so that the gift would be in front. I heat-embossed the sentiment in white on the dark navy paper. The paper scrap has glitter in it as well, but I didn't get it in the photo. A tiny scrap of silver glitter paper finished the card off.
