Happy Birthday Dragon

Hey, already had this little cutie coloured so decided to make him up to fit the My Crafty Creations challenge using green and purple.

I used a free digi image from a magazine and coloured it using promarkers. I then edged him using Brilliance pearlescent purple ink and backed him onto green. I cut a backing mount for him from holographic purple card and using go Kreate's retangular frame Frilly #1.

I then cut my backing from green paper and edged this using Momento grape jelly ink. I embossed a Tim Holtz Alterations Elegant Flourish using Heat It Up purple and lilac embossing powders and used this to imitate fire in the top corner of the card. I stuck the image to the bottom right corner of the card.

For embelishments, I used lilac ribbon with a green ribbon slide diaganally across the corners of the card. I then added the sentiments Happy Birthday in one corner and May Your Wishes Come True in the other. I added a green balloon brad to the corner of the image. Finally, I added green beads to a purple heart Hobbyhouse pin and inserted this under the image along with a green bow. Very cute :)
