Dillon the Dragon

I just love this cute wee chap.  He was a freebie from Pink Gem Designs a while ago but I hadn't got round to playing with him until now.  I think he's the perfect image for a little boy's card, my son certainly liked him and wanted to watch me colour him, which I did with my Promarkers.  Once coloured, I accented the image with Anita's 3D Gloss on the wings, horns and scales on the tail, and, to make him look scaly and shiny, I used dots of Cosmic Shimmer glitter glue in Autumn Twinkles and Stickles in Eucalyptus on the body.  His tummy was covered in Autumn Twinkles too.
The papers are all Papermania Capsule Collection in Cranberry and Apple and the sentiment stamps are from two different Personal Impressions sets.
A few buttons finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Divas by Design - #33 - monochromatic
Fab 'n' Funky - #119 - celebrate maleness
Penny's Paper-crafty - #78 - happy birthday
Celebrate the Occasion - #61 - masculine and must use a circle
Crafty Sentiments - spots or stripes
Crafty Cardmakers - #67 - for the boys
