Dinosaur Birthday Card

I have so many cards that I need to make this January, including two for little boys.  I chose this 1985 Hero Arts Dinosaur image for this card.  I do think that this is mature enough for a man who likes dinosaurs, as well (and I do know men that really like them)!

I used a sketch for this card, and just changed up the two supporting elements for the banner and star. I also used a sentiment on the inside which is from the same set as the star.  

I would love the play along with:
Tuesday Morning Sketches - #435
SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge - Patterned Paper
Tuesday Throwdown - Layer it Up!
DiesRUs Challenge - Anything Goes with Dies

Supplies:  Hero Arts Dinosaur Stamp, Memento Black ink, Gina K Designs Birthday Go Round stamp set, Versfine Olympia Green, Spanish Moss ink cubes, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, EK Success little Banner punch and 1 inch circle punch, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers

I decided to make a second card with different papers for the second birthday boy, so I am tagging that on to the end of this post.  It is amazing how much less time a duplicate card takes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Heidi, how absolutely adorable! My younger grandson would LOVE this dinosaur! I made a pillow out of his favorite tee shirt (that he outgrew), and he sleeps with it every night! What beautiful coloring and such a great layout! Warm hugs, sweet friend!

Darling card Heidi, those banners remind me of the spines on the dinosaur.
