Uguns the Dragon

The current Less is More challenge is 'Saints, Dragons or Heroes' in celebration of St George's Day which is celebrated in England on 23 April.  I've used a Lili of the Valley die cut 'Ugun the Dragon' for my card which I'm also entering into The Male Room 'Shakespeare' challenge. My interpretation is that Shakespeare died on 23 April 1616 (which is the day we celebrate St George's Day) and one of Shakespeare's famous quotes from King Lear is 'Come not between the dragon and his wrath'.  I'm also entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Uguns the Dragon' die-cut topper
Die: Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday'
Card: Dark purple and pale green matt

I die cut the Grand Happy Birthday from dark purple card, trimmed it and attached it to the lower edge of the card.  I then die cut the birthday section from pale green card and inlaid the letters.  Although the dragon was already die cut it had quite a thick white border, so I fussy cut around the image before attaching it to the card front with Pinflair glue. As I want to send the card to a young boy I resisted the temptation to add any sparkle or sequins!

Oh this is very clever! Love this cute dragon, although I'm not sure that King Lear would be thinking of a cute dragon! Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with our Shakespeare challenge. Deborah, DT.
