Enter The Dragon

Hi folks,
I have a little Chinese New Year card to share with you today!
I had to make a couple of these, but as they were for totally unrelated parties, 
I was able to use the same design for both! 
 A great time saver!

I trawled the internet looking for a suitable image to use but I just
couldn't find anything I liked.
Then I remembered Dilbert Dragon from The Crafty Pad Designs!
He's a cute little dragon is he not!!!
I didn't intend to go cute but there you have it!
I couldn't stop singing "Puff The Magic Dragon" as I was making these!
I made the sentiment up in my graphics programme
then added Dilbert to the centre.
The base card was cut using a Grand Scalloped Circle Nestie which I 
then scored & folded in half!

I cut a smaller scalloped circle of gold mirror card with a regular nestie.
I cut Dilbert out using an Inverted Scallop nestie & inked the edges.
The image was coloured with Promarkers & I added a touch of Glamour Dust
to Dilberts wings &  horns!
I added a couple of Oriental Peel off's which are supposed to represent water,
also a feature of this Chinese New Year I am informed.
The numbers were die cut but I can't remember the name of the alphabet!
Thanks for stopping by!
