Denny the Dinosaur says Happy Birthday.

Hi Guys,

Been over a week since I posted on here, had a few wedding cards to make, so they've been keeping me plenty busy. Trouble is, I can't post them until after the 18th, so I thought I'd have a break today and do something a bit different.

So here's today's card, it's a birthday card featuring Denny the Dinosaur. Isn't he cute. It's a freeby digi stamp by Pink Gem Designs ( I've had to edit this post because I put the wrong company, sorry Janet ) and I'd not used it yet, so thought I'd have a go.

I used promarkers to colour the image, in my favourite colour I might add, then it was matted onto lilac co-ordinations card, using my spellbinders grand big scalloped circles die. The backing papers are docrafts, from their especially for you cd. Flowers are MCS, printed in various colours, with a glittered centre.  Spellbinders floral flourishes have been added in lilac and purple and two parchment butterflies, made using the pergamano butterfly grid. The gems and ribbon were taken from my stash. Finally, the celebrate tag is from cardart.

Hope you like it, I certainly enjoyed making it, a nice refreshing change.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
