One new and one re-do

I've done a couple of paper projects and boy have they reminded me why I love digi work :P I had to print both several times, once because I cut something I shouldn't have (second card), once because I stuck the ribbon on wonkily (first card), once because a cat sat on them and creased things (both), once because the printer had a bit of scrap card inside it that messed up the printing (both). And then I had to take lots of photos and try to find one of each that isn't absolutely dreadful :P
So, enough of my whinging, lol, here they are. I've used two images from the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge - the first is Dragonlets and Me by Delicious Doodles (you may have seen the digital version of this, posted before I understood the rules) and the second, although it doesn't look like I've used an image, uses the beautiful Mandala image by Daisy Doodles, in two different sizes, to create the background. The text on the second one is from The Moon by Shelley.
Challenges for each are below the images.

I used the sketch from Fetch-a-Sketch for this one, but I already entered the digital version of my card over there and this one only has minor differences.
CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge - Halloween or mystical (dragons are mystical)
Sentimental Sundays - anything goes
Ribbon Carousel - sparkle and bling. As well as the gems, which you can see, the dragon wings have a slight coating of glitter, which you can't. And the gems are actually a pale lilac colour and very sparkly.
Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge - anything goes
Digital Tuesday - Fall Colours
Crafty Purple Frog - thank you
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - 1 ribbon, 2 shapes (oval and square) and glitter (on the spiny parts of the dragon wings)
Easy Craft Projects - Autumn or Thank You
Stampin' For the Weekend - Fall colours
Bling It On - no patterned papers

Please note that this was designed digitally and then the whole thing was printed straight onto cardstock, So although it looks like it has layers, it doesn't.

CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge - Halloween or mystical (I hope the poem makes it mystical)
Skrappekammeret - sketch
Die Cut Dreams - use a poem (please note that you need a digi image for this challenge, and I made my background with a mandala image)
Crafts and Me - orange
Crazy Amigos - one layer card with no embellishments
Crafty Cardmakers - anything goes
Creative Inspiration - single layer card
Glitter Geeks - Two's Company (I've done the whole thing in only two colours and I've also used two sizes of the same stamp)
Wags n Whiskers - Fall colours
Lothian Crafts Online - anything goes
