Never laugh at live dragons

Here's the card that I made for our friend Steve's birthday. The dragon, sentiment and flourish are from a fantastic Elusive images stamp set. They're heat embossed with my new Iron Stone Red embossing powder from Print Blocks. The braid is really old - one of my very early purchases when I first started cardmaking. Nesties scalloped square and border inked with ColorBox chalk ink; We R Memory Keepers patterned paper.
