Dinosaur birthday



Tomorrow is my grandson Dylan's 4th birthday. At the moment dinosaurs are at the top of his interest list. Has to have a dinosaur cake.... so made him a dino card. I didnt have a stamp for a dino so had to think... here's how I did it.

Paper - brown card stock, matted green which I had run through the numbers folder of the cuttlebug. Coloured the three numbers 4 and then put on glossy accents to make them pop. I used a DP with dinosaurs and cut out the 2 under a tree in the top corner. The paper is from Queen of hearts - dinky dino. It is a local SA company.

Image is taken from a colouring book resized and coloured with aquarelle pencils.
Sentiment is from a local stamping company.
The ribbon tag is from a Nellie Snellen MFD.
I chose the colours because I entered it into a challenge using colours brown, green and pink......hence the pink dino. The challenge is for Monday's birthday card on Outlawz group
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend. Warm wishes.
