Dinosaur Birthday!

Happy Thursday!

I never seem to have enough birthday cards in my stash, especially enough for small kids.  My kids have had 5 birthday parties in July alone.  YIKES!!!  

This dinosaur seemed like the perfect choice for making some cute little boys cards.  I colored the dinosaur with my Copic markers and decided to make his plates a rainbow color.  (he he, I had to look up what those were called and I'm guessing this is a stegosaurus)

I decided that he would look great against some strips of papers matching his plates.  I purposely cute them off kilter a bit as I thought it would add a little character to the card.  I finished it off with a rub-on sentiment.

Hope you enjoy and that this gives you some ideas for kids cards.

Stamps: Large Stega F2146 from Stamp N Plus Scrap N
Cardstock: Dare to be a Diva Red, Orange You Fabulous, Say Yellow to all your Fans, Glamazon Green, You're Style Blue Me Away, Purpilicious
