The Huntsman

I've mentioned before my struggle with card making...
Today I continued my battle...
In this case using "the huntsman" from Saturated Canary (find it here)
At the Saturated Canary Challenge blog there is a challenge based on a picture
I interpreted the green grass and the big tree into this
Birthday Card for a friend from work
My friend is really into magic cards (I don't get it but he LOVES them)
So I figured what else would a little boy with a sword slay but a dragon??
I added some sewn detail around the sides

And the oval that the huntsman is die cut out of was them embossed around the edges.
The Ticket is from Tim Holtz, and I added the "happy day" stamping
Here's the huntsman's close up...
Isn't he a cutie?? 
Hope you like what I've created today!
