Football Dino!

Now this was a really quick card to make! Probably because I'd already coloured the image a few weeks ago when it was to be part of something else, and then wasn't. So I think it took about 20 mins to make in total!

The Inspirational Card Sketches challenge this week is this delightfully simple sketch:
So I used a really thin and naff card blank, but made it better by using two, cutting one smaller and layering it on the top. It works, and I have an instant border too! The backing papers are from Funky Daze (oh how I love these papers!!) and I just trimmed around the dino leaving some bits sticking out then layered him onto the backing paper.

All edges have been lightly inked with blue and green with three card candy's added. The sentiment is stamped and is Anita's.

The Dino is from Dustin Pike and I've coloured him with felt tips (the bargain ones from Tesco's!) and added some white gel pen for highlights.

And the card is for a friend of mine (we met when we were heavily pregnant at a very relaxed and funny anti-natal class and we were both expecting our first bundle of joys within 2 weeks of each other) who's eldest is 6 soon. See how organised I am becoming!! It won't last, I can tell you!
