Friday Sketchers and Birthday card

I made this card for my Son's birthday and followed the sketch over at Friday sketchers.

I an terrible at making male cards but having the sketch made it a lot easier as it was a really easy sketch to work with.

I made a few cards for Liam who will be 11 tomorrow (22nd) from his sisters and this one from me, but I only have time to upload one just now.

Liam is a typical boy who likes nothing except weird stuff lol, so I had no idea what image to use, so I hope he likes it!
He likes dragons but I don't have any dragon stamps so I had to cheat. I found this dragon image on a clip art website (can't remember where now sorry) and just made it a bit smaller then printed and coloured with my copics. The papers were also printed, I'm not sure where I got them as I've had them for ages but they were in a free download from one of the digital scrapbooking sites.
The little stars were punched with a kids punch from Tesco and I just glittered them to match the colours of the paper. The sentiment was from a Dovecraft stamp which has a butterfly on it too but I just inked up the Best Wishes with a marker to leave out the butterfly (don't think he would of appreciated a card with butterflies on it lol).
Right I'm off to bed now as the birthday boy will probably have me up very early so he can get his presents!
Thanks for looking
Hugs Lora
