Dragons are girly, too

I love Dustin Pike's digital stamps and use them all the time for birthday cards but I hadn't realized that I tended to only use them for boys' cards until the latest challenge on Doodle Dragon Studio. Kerri challenged us to make any Doodle Dragon Studios DRAGON IMAGE GO GIRLY. I used a sketch from Midnight Madness to get me started and then went crazy with girly colours, patterns and embellishments. I thought it would be fun to have the flower (made with QuicKutz "daisy" die cut) with several petals flying off in the wind created by the carousel horse.

I'm thinking it might need some glitter and glossy accents to really finish it up but I have to mull over it for awhile. I would likely add glitter to the flowers & petals, maybe to the dragon herself. And som glossy accents to the horse or just the saddle? What do you think?

The challenges this card fits with include:
Digital stamp - Doodle Dragon Studio
Papers - Basic Grey
Die cut - QuicKutz "daisy"
Copic markers
