Dare U 2 Digi Challenge (2 weeks in a row...wheeee)

I can't believe it, I actually was able to participate in Dare U 2 Digi challenges 2 weeks in a row..yaaaa me!!! LOL This week it is a colour challenge - yellow, orange & black (or white)
I have been working on this card for a couple days, trying to figure out the BEST way to use that castle door - and this is what I came up with. I originally wanted it to open, and the dragon pop out but it wasn't working. I will keep trying though!!!!

I used Digi stamps by Dustin Pike - the castle wall was a freebie awhile ago and I just got the dragon in his latest release. So adorable!!!! I coloured it all with Copics, then attached the dragon to the top of the wall. I cut out the door completely and glued a piece of vellum behind it. I mounted it all on pop dots & put it on silver cardstock. The finished size is about 5 1/2 x 10 from tip of his tail to the bottom of the card - gonna have to be creative in making an envelope for this baby!!!! I cut out the ROAR with my Cricut (Animal Kingdom cartridge)

And here is the inside sentiment. It is going to a little boy so I didn't want it to be too scary!! LOL

Thanks for hanging out with me! I hope you have a great week! I have to go back to work after 5 days off - sighhhh!!!!! See ya all tomorrow with the new Simon Says Stamp challenge!!!
