Dino-mite Birthday

One of Luke's friends has a birthday coming up so I decided to make a boy's birthday card last night.

I used a digital stamp from Stamping Dragon Designs (currently available as a freebie on Crafters Digital Art Center (CDAC) as part of this month's challenge). And by the way, if you aren't a member at CDAC yet, join and start using all those wonderful digis!

Since the card is for a boy I wanted a nice earthy feel and so decided to use the colour palette from Play Date Cafe's colour challenge. The sentiment is computer generated with an eyelet put through the "o" for a bit of interest. I'm quite proud of the 3 circle embellies as those were saved from some packaging months ago - I just knew they would come in handy some day!

When the card was finished it still seemed too plain so I added a couple of fabric maple leaves behind the dinosaur. I think it makes for a more interesting background and kind of reminds me of wings.
