MC Mar/11 Dragon HB card

Happy st Patrick's day everyone...

Needed to make a male card for one of my uncles and this is what I came up with.

I relied on a few challenges to give me direction - one was a 2 tone challenge and favorite color combo (red and black). These are colors that are in my kitchen. I love wearing red although I don't use it that often in my card making, but for a man it worked perfectly.

I'm also using some favorite mediums, Paper Clay and glitter and one of my favorite toys, my Cricut.

The background is made using a Quietfire Design Happy Birthday stamp.

Anyway, click on card image to see details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.

And it fits for these challenges:

Creatalicious #20 Use 2 tones (black and red)
Incy Wincy Designs #85 for a man
Iris ZH #15 Glitter
Kaboodle Doodles #58 Birthday
Ooh La La Creations #75 for a man
Stamps Fun Creativity #38 Favorite color combo
Shabby Tearoom #53 Birthday
Wild Orchid #19 Die cuts or punches
Cuttlebug Challenge Twine
Kortudfordring #36 Dies or punches
Papertake Weekly #56 use 3 of something (twine wrapped 3 times, 3 layers for dragon, 3 Paperclay bamboos so that means 3 different elements combined BIG GRIN)
Reasonable Ribbon #20 for a man
Scrap Creations 1 #55 Anything Goes
Belli Challenge #113 the letter C (casting the paper clay, or clear embossing)
Simon Says Birthday
YNS Challenge #38 make it sparkle
Fussy & Fancy #33 sketch (see below)
Prairie Fairy Fridays #48 Birthday
CES Challenges #28 for a man
