The Birthday Dinosaur


I made this for a 2 year old boy who's birthday party me and my boys attended on Saturday. The adorable dinosaur image is by Heather from Stamps by Judith. It's colored with Copics I added some sponging around the image with Distress ink in Faded Jeans...but apparently it's invisible in this photo. All the paper is Basic Grey from the Archaic line...I just love it! I used decorative edged scissors on either side of the light blue panel and added brass brads in the corners. I decided on a double ribbon because I thought one was just too narrow for this card and skipped the bow to keep it more boyish. The dino footprint is a Basic Grey stamp from their acrylic set. The ferns I had to tear in half because they were too long to tuck behind the sentiment panel. I can't remember who makes them...I bought them in a bottle at my lss and I don't use them very often...I kinda forget I have them! The sentiment and the patterned panel are matted with black which picks up the black stamped image. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
