Skateboarding Dragon!

Here's a card I've made for a friend's wee boy who will be six on Hogmanay.  He's a pal of my son who had his sixth birthday yesterday, so it's festive birthdays all round!  We had a lovely day with Robbie yesterday, to celebrate his birthday we took him and four friends to the cinema and then for a burger, they were all amazingly well behaved.  We've just got to figure out where to put all those Christmas and birthday toys now!
The image is a freebie from Dustin Pike, check out his blog for loads of fun free images in his distinctive cartoon style.  I've coloured this one with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The sentiment stamped with a stamp from a Personal Impressions set and the papers are ancient ones which have been lurking in my stash of ages, I only have a few sheets left as they've been so handy for those hard to male male cards.  The stars were made with Xcut dies, the middle one was decorated with a Papermania number six, the other two with Card Candi.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Pixie Dust Studio - any celebration
Use it Tuesday - #46 - 2013 - this card is for a new year's eve birthday using ancient papers.  My 2013 crafty resolutions are, to try harder to make a dent in my older papers, and to put more thought into male cards, I tend to struggle with them!
