Less is More Week 273 Saints and Dragons or Heroes

The challenge for this week is as follows:

For some fun this week our recipe is to include

Saints, Dragons or Heroes.

St. George's Day takes place on April 23rd every year, recognising the patron saint of England, apparently made famous for slaying a dragon and saving a distressed maiden.
There are not usually many celebrations in honour of this day, so this will be our little salute!
You don't have to portray elements of this story, but whatever your imagination conjures up with this theme.
We would however like an explanation if your link is tenuous!
Just have fun!

And here's my card:

I don't have any stamps of dragons, saints or heroes so I found these fab digi stamps and took them into Serif and managed to make a group out of them.  The cake and flame are also digi stamps and I put the flame on top of the cake to look like those ditzy characters set it alight.  I coloured them with Prisma pencils (I've not had a play with them for ages so it was fun doing some colouring).  The sentiment was printed from the computer.  I recently bought some TODO basic square dies and they are great, brilliant sizes to mat and layer; they're bigger than the Spellbinder squares.
Thanks for dropping by
