Year of the Dragon


Chinese New Year is coming up, and 2012 is "The Year of the Dragon".

I know a little boy who turns 8 this year, and is a big fan of firefighters,
so thought this Dustin Pike dragon image would make a perfect card for him!

Supplies Used:
Digi image : Dustin Pike
Paper: A2Z Essentials
Buttons : AC
Sentiment : Hero Arts
Copics / Glossy Accents
Chipboard "8" : AC

I machine stitched the background panel, paper pierced the image panel,
used a rub on "K" on the hat for the birthday boy's name,  
and added glossy accents to the water drops.  I also punched black
carstock circles to anchor the buttons!

Challenges:

Crazy 4 Challenges : Card for a Child

Dustin Pike : Birthday

CCEE Stampers : Year of the Dragon

Crafty Catz : Buttons and Bows
