Party Animal...

This is my DT submission for the Monday morning "Party Animal" challenge at Craft Your Passion.  My niece has always loved dragons so this was my obvious choice of a celebrating animal!
He was printed out, colored with Copics and then an embossed frame was created with a Scor-It tool.  Tag  and punched circles were made for the sentiment, the blue mat layer under the image is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder for texture.  The flags were printed on scraps of paper, cut and foam tape elevated on the waxed linen book binding thread that has been sewn thru the spine of the card.
Added a little bling, finished the inside (below) & called it done!

If you are so inclined - check out the Design Team's take on this theme & join  the "Party Animal" Challenge at Craft Your Passion by Saturday, 5/25!
