Birthday Dragon

I created this birthday card using this adorable dragon image from Doodle Dragon Studios.  This week's Dustin Pikes challenge is to create a birhday card using just two colors from the challenge blog header. I used purple and green. I used purple as the base of my card. I colored the image using crayola colored pencils. I backed the image and the sentiment in green and then again in white.  The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.  I added a piece of purple ribbon to the block of green cardstock at the bottom. I finished the card by adding a purple glittery flower button to the left side of the ribbon and 3 purple sprinkles (from Annabelle Stamps) to the top right corner.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
