You're Dino-Mite and GIVEAWAY!

Oh yea, the weekend is ALMOST here!

I've got a quick post to play along with the latest

I had a special request from a coworker to create a birthday card 
for her nephew who loves dinosaurs.
Of course I had to pull out my Lawn Fawn and get to work!
The texture challenge was the perfect inspiration to play with cork
from DCWV Cork Solids Stack Brights.  It has such beautiful colors and
die cuts like butter!  I used Lawn Fawn Black Licorice for a crisp stamped image.

Everything came together quickly with pattern paper from
 Lawn Fawn's Beachside Pint Sized Patterns as the background.  I die cut a
stitched oval stackable to create the base of the scene.  Then die cut some grass and adhered
 the images with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive (my favorite liquid adhesive).
The brontosaurus was adhered with foam dots for some dimension.

I wish you could feel the texture through the screen! 
I used a cool gray copic marker to create some shadowing on the dinosaurs since
they were all die cut from colored cork.

There you have it!
I'm hoping he loves it!!

Mahalo for stopping by.
Oh and since you made it this far I'm doing a GIVEAWAY!
