A Welsh Birthday Card

My Welsh speaking son wanted a Welsh card for his mate.  

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card wirh red and green card. I have added embossed white card down the centre. I used an Embossalicious Picnic Plaid embossing folder. On both sides of the embossed card I have added red satin ribbon. I die cut the banner with a Sue Wilson die and added the sentiment that I cut with Tattered Lace dies. I attached that to my card with foam pads. I die cut the dragon using a Sweet Dixie die and added that to white and green circles.

I completed my card with stars I cut using a punch

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
