Party Dragon for Ethan's 1st Birthday

Good morning. Hello to all my lovely new followers - so good to see you :o)
Today I would like to share a card I have made for Oliver to send to his cousin Ethan for his upcoming 1st birthday - he was born exactly 2 weeks after Oliver and I hope they grow up to be as close as their Dads are :o)

I have used a fab fun Dragon image from Bugaboo Stamps for my card - Clyde Birthday
and coloured him with FM's and PM's

I added some Glossy Accents to his balloon and also added some Cosmic Shimmer Film to his wings - I did this by tracing over the wings onto the film and then cut it out and adhered over the top of the image - not the conventional way of using it but it adds that extra detail I think :o)

Scrummy DP's - DCWV - Nana's Nursery For a Boy

Sentiment PC Generated

As this is for a 1yr old boy I thought it would be best to keep it CAS.

For now I need to go put the joint of beef in the oven - I've got all the boys and their partners and my squidglicious Grandson Oliver coming for Sunday lunch - just how I like it - the family all together round the table :o)

Thanks for your visit today - I really appreciate it.
Enjoy your day.
