Color challenge

Hello friends! Today I wanted to try to do the MFT color challenge. I've never done a color challenge before and I needed to make a card for my son's birthday so I decided to kill two birds with one stone! My challenge was taking the colors and laying it out so that it would be more appropriate for a four year old boy! As you can see below the scheme is a little on the feminine side. I was excited to use these cute little dragons from MFT and of course some chibitronics! I'm not sure if my circuitry is bad or my battery is a little old but its not lighting up as well as I'd like, luckily his birthday is still a month away and i have some time to mess with it a little more. Hopefully i don't wreck anything in the process!

Materials used:

MFT - Magical Dragons
Chibitronics - copper tape, white LED
The Alley Way - Once upon a time
Purple Onion Designs - Stacey Yucala: trees
Stampersanonymous - Tim Holtz swirls, mini stencil set 3
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Hillside pop-ups, stitched hillside borders
Ranger - enamel accents yellow, grit paste, distress ink mowed lawn
Uni posca - white
Wink of stella - clear
Gelly roll - gold, silver
Vellum - orange, yellow

Copics used:

E21, E25, E29, E97, E95, E93, E37, E35, E34, E31, E04, E11, E00, E000, R20, C7, C5, C3, W7, W5, W3, YG99, YG97, YG95

Like so many others I had to let this little guy light up!

Finally the last part, turning this card into a pop up! This is probably my most interactive card yet, and I absolutely love pop-ups!
