And a realio, trulio, little pet dragon

Only two weeks in to the new year and birthday season has well and truly started and I have my first kidlet birthday card to share, featuring the cute Jude and Lazy from the Teen Scene Dragon Pets collection at Simply B Stamps.

This card is for a nephew who turns three this week so I’ve kept the embellies to a minimum lest they end up being swallowed!  It follows the current Sketch Saturday sketch, a nice CAS one that works well for a boy.  I printed off the sentiment on my card base before adding on my layers, I jazzed it up with some embossing.

I like to use challenge themes to help me make up my cards, they are often a good prompt, like the current one at Allsorts to use a ribbon.  I really do need to use up my huge stash of ribbon so rather than use a paper banner I added a line of ribbon for that element of the sketch.

With my cheery yellow background card I am also entering this in the current challenge at Wordplay Saturday.
