Bones, bones, bones.

He's a bit skinny this one......needs a good meal.....

I needed a birthday card for a boy, so I thought I'd adapt the sketch from Inkurable Stampers- I love the Inkurable Stampers blog, lots of inspiration and lovely stamping!!! The sketch has a window on it, but I adapted it and ripped the main image into four. There are 3 stamps on there (dinosaur, sentiment and a splodgy texture stamp on the brown crumpled paper), although the splodge one (a last minute addition) is hard to see on the photo.

The stamps and paper are from Basic Grey. The stamps are acrylic and stamp beautifully, it's a fabulous set.  The sticky backed leaf ribbon was free with a magazine ages ago, so it qualifies for the Crafty Cardmakers Use a freebie challenge.

I'm also entering it into Ooh La La Creations challenge which is something scary- well you don't get much scarier than a T-Rex!


Stamps- Basic Grey Dino
Paper- Basic Grey Dino, Brown card
Inks- Memento- Rich cocoa; Distress Inks- Vintage photo, Old paper, Tea Dye
Stash- Leaf design ribbon
