Happy First Birthday

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)

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters from the Past and matching dies
Dies: Lawn Fawn April Showers, Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Alphabet Die - Inside Out by Tim Holtz
Ink and colouring: Tim Holz Distress Oxides, Copics, Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black

Very beautiful background! I love the little scene you created for the Cute-asaurus and the addition of the numeral 1.

Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up for our Critter challenge!
