Ouch Dragon Get Well Card

I hope everyone is having a good weekend, I went out all day to an all day crafting event run my Sonia who teaches jewellery making and cardmaking in Ferndown. We had 4 different tutors showing us how to make 4 different cards, a great day was had by all.

Here is my latest card which I am going to enter into 5 different challenges, I am getting used to combining them now as I have had less time recently to make some cards, in fact I can be quite a challenge to combine them all too.
I have made this card from a lovely sketch over at Stamps and smiles I rotated the sketch by 90 degrees. The image is from Dustin Pike he is called Boo Boo Dragon, I think he is soooo cute and he only costs $2.50 as a download image.
I have coloured him in with Meadow Green and Lemon Promarkers which were the required colours to use for Passion for Promarkers challenge this week, I coloured his plasters with pastel beige, I think this is allowed as main image is in the required colours, they wouldn't have looked right in meadow green or lemon. I have cut the image out with an oval nesite and backed this onto a scalloped oval nestie. I have run some scrap pieces of green and lemon coloured card through my cuttlebug swiss dots and distressed embossing folders and printed the sentiment and cut out with circle and scalloped circle nesties, (It was a requirement to use scrap pieces and a digi image) to enter Digital Tuesdays challenge. I am also entering the card into Papertake weekly's challenge which this weeks required element was to use a digi stamp and also into Charisma Cardz The theme this week being any theme, any style. I am now going to enjoy the rest of the weekend with this beautiful weather we are having. Thanks for looking x
