Dino-riffic Birthday

Hi there. Today I wanted to share a card I made for my mom to give to my nephew for his birthday. So I had to come up with something boyish...and dinosaurs were the only thing that came to Since I happen to have some dino stuff because my youngest DD loves dinosaurs. I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch for my LO. I started with some yellow CS as my base color. Then I layered the PP onto that, and some yellow ribbon. I rotated the sketch a little to fit my card. I used some green and yellow Core'dinations CS for the ovals. I crinkled them, and sanded them a little too. Then I layered the yellow rectangle onto that, and added a triceratops sticker to that. I used my Cricut and the dinosaur cartridge to cut the footprints. I cut them with some grayish PP, and sponged over them to make them a little darker. Oh, I also added some little silver brads to the corners too. I hand wrote "Happy Birthday" with black marker.
Thanks for stopping by!

Great job on this one! It is hard to do boy cards, but at least it is a little easier when they are fairly young. This turned out very cute, he will love it.
