A card for Lewis

Hi Folks!
Welcome to the weekend! If you are wondering who Lewis is, he is a good friend of my twins and it's his 4th birthday party today. He loves knights and dragons. Lucky for me I had the perfect stamps and sketch to make is card. Jo, over on Sketch Saturday has done it again with another fabby sketch. This week is being sponsored by Emma Lockley. Emma is a UK independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. Hop over to the SS blog to see Emma's take on this weeks sketch and details of the great prize she is offering. I would also like to welcome Diane, our Guest DT for the next two weeks, who has also made a stunning card alongside my fellow DT.
To begin with I used some really sturdy dark card as a base. Stamped and embossed the edges with this great clear stamp, another purchase from QVC. The square panel is actually from the DCWV Once Upon A Time stack but I managed to cover all the gorgeous glittered crowns with other elements! I cut the vertical band directly from the cardstock from the stack. I used my Cricut to cut the dotty frame and adhered some faux coins. They have been in my stash for agesand I was glad to get them out. The dragon and knight are from Whiff of Joy and I coloured them with distress inks. The letters are rubs ons which also came in the DCWV kit.
I hope Lewis likes his card and has a great birthday.
Ciao for now!
