Just Us Girls #295 Wild Card week!

Hello! It's me-late again!! And in a hurry too!  I'll get this posted and make it brief and come back with details later, okay?  Thanks for understanding!  I just adore this card and I'm so glad you popped over for a closer look! I hope I don't disappoint!  It's Wild Card week at JUST US GIRLS and Sharyn chose a great one! PAPER PIECING!! I know I'd like to do it more often. I ALWAYS love the results!  Please join in with us this week, won't you!

For my card I used Happy Dinoday-a new image from Whipper Snapper Designs.  They have created several terrific dinosaurs! I think they are great for all ages and celebrations!
 Please have a look at my pics and check in later. I promise to post a bit more! PROMISE!!

Okay, as promised, I'm back. Happy Dinoday was stamped in memento tuxedo black on xpress it blending card and cut using MFT's cross stitch square (largest one).  Then I used my copics to color his tummy in Ys and YR24, his toenails and teeth in W0 and W2, his balloon in RV14 and Rv19, as well as his hat. Then his hat is dotted and bowed in Yr 15.  I also stamped the image (in Memento black) onto Bo Bunny double dot paper (lime green). I used my copics to color right onto the dotted paper and then fussy cut it out. I just love how the simple shading makes him look so 3d on the patterned paper! And then he is glued onto the xpress it cardstock, so that part is a bit raised and he just looks sooo awesome!
I stamped MFT dotted bg in Lucky Limeade (SU onto) Limeade Ice (PTI) cardstock and MFTs diagonal stripe background in Coastal Cabana (SU) onto Coastal Cabana cardstock.
I used white gel pen on the dino's eyes, then a bit of black sharpie for the pupils and finally (when all that was dry) a coat of glossy accents.  There is (are?) also glossy accents added to his toenails, and Stardust stickles on his festive party balloon and party hat as well as the pink dots on his body.
Here's a LINK to the other Whipper Snapper Dinos!  I have Birthdaysaurus and think I may need Desmond next!

Thanks again for stopping by! Cheryl

I love that little dino with his soft dots, just like some baby animals. Very cool how you colored on the patterned paper, too.
