Dragon Birthday Card

This week at Paper Sundaes the challenge is to make a card for a man or boy (or anything in between...we all know man-boys =P) so this is the card I came up with.  I struggled with this card because everything I thought of to finish it was decidedly girly.  I asked my hubby what he thought of the finished product and he liked it.  So I think I managed to accomplish the challenge!  The image is from Doodle Dragon Studios by an artist named Dustin Pike.  Many of his images are great for cards for guys.  This one was a freebie that is available here

I am also entering this card at the Doodle Dragon Studio Challenge Blog because Anything Goes for their challenge this time.

The challenge at Wee Memories this week is Birthday Bash so I am entering my card there as well.

This is the first time I have used the Core'dinations cardstock that I bought ages ago at a stamp convention that comes to our area every summer.  I have to say that I really like the texture and effect that it gives.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
Sentiment-Stampin' Up Bold and Basic Greetings
