Resemblance to dinos is pure coincidence

A couple of friends are hitting landmark birthdays this year and when I saw Lucy Abrams' card in the January/February 2013 issue of Paper Crafts Magazine (page 55)  I just knew that I had to scraplift the design. I printed the sentiments directly onto kraft card blanks (in case you can't read it from the picture, I've put the sentiment text below the photo). The dinos (from Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragons Studio) are printed on patterned paper and then paper-pieced and coloured. The papers are all from Basic Grey "Granola". The grey ribbon is an upcycle item as it came wrapped around a blanket that I bought a couple of months ago (love "free" stuff).
