Darling & Dreaded Dragon

Hi there,
This is my birthday card for my Godson, who’s turning 6 today:

He’s into Superheroes at the moment, so I’m not sure how well this dragon fits in with that theme, but when I was toy shopping for him, I bought some sort of Dragon Transformer 🙄 and that one sat on the same shelf as the Superhero toys, so it can’t be too far off, or??? Hopefully he’ll like both the toy and the card! Just to be on the secure side, I also got him a Lego Hulk. 🙂

Crop Stop – Show us the Animal in youDoes dragon count as an animal??? 🙂 Anywho, according to the Chinese zodiac this is the year of the Dragon and I happen to be a dragon… 😉

A bit extravagant one might think that it is with all those buttons, but the thing is; I’ve had them for years, without ever using a single one, as far as I can remember. They simply don’t  fit in with my present style of cardmaking, but as I always try to do something a little bit different when making cards for kids, they came in handy this time…

There was no way though I was going to sew on all those buttons, so I used my partner in crime; Superglue!  😀

I really enjoyed making this card; did a bit of playing with crackle paint and distress inks on the tag.

Fact is, I have a blast every year when making my Godson’s birthday cards. Below are two from previous years:
