Boy cards... so hard. Except for little boys who turn one, nothing but super cute smiling dinosaurs! I've had this stamp set for ages, and it always makes me smile. I also love making smooshing backgrounds using Distress Oxides. I think the colours are just right on this card, even if I do say so myself.
I started by creating a background with Distress Oxide Smooshing. I stamped the cute-o-saurus and palm tree from Lawn Fawn Critters from the Past and coloured with Copics. I die cut the sun using a Lawn Fawn die from Lawn Fawn Let's Polka patterned paper. The '1' is die cut using a Tim Holtz die.
I'm linking up this card with the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers - Whatever the weather
The Crafters Cafe - Animal and/or ATC
Cut It Up - Critters, must include die cut
Inspire.Create - Birthday
Always Fun Challenges - Mood board (I was inspired by the colours and the texture in the top middle image which I think looks exactly like the ink smooshing)
