Delicious Doodles Challenge - Friday 19 April 2013 - Colour Combo of Green and Brown

Another Friday has whizzed around and it's time for a new challenge at Delicious Doodles.  This week it is a colour combo challenge of "green and brown".
For my card I have used one of Teri's new images at Delicious Doodles called "Dragon Dreams".  I know dragons aren't supposed to be cute but I think this little chappie is!!!  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my white gel pen and coloured the area around the image with Pan Pastels as I wanted a lighter effect.
I have used a backing paper from the Delicious Doodles Oriental Lotus paper pack.  I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder of a brick wall as I thought this replicated the scale effect on the lady.  The card has been finished off with some fibres (this colour I've had for 2-3 years and not used as it is lime green!!), lace, buttons with memory wire threaded through them, ribbon bow, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some bought flowers held together with a brad.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
