Hey dude

I just love the challenge over at CR84FN - first time I've found this blog but boy am I glad I did!! Red/Yellow and a neutral - I was dying to create a card - but of course, my mind was on all girly stuff but then a friend requested a b-day card for her nephew who turns 5 in a few weeks. Well...why not make those colors work right? :D

Fastest card made in my crafting career - LOL. DP is from Bo Bunny; found some red - found some yellow and went to work. I covered the red polka dot paper with Antique Linen distress ink - yeah, boys get dirty and the white was just "too clean" - HA!

The cute little dinosaur was stamped on the white card stock then stamped 2 more times - once on the yellow DP and once onto Kraft card stock - I cut the entire image out of the yellow and then cut off just the "horns" from the Kraft and adhered with a glue pen. I roughed up all the edges - inside as well as outside. Stamped the "hey dude" on a Lil Inkers flag and added a jute twine stitch.

Card and Matching Envelope

I wanted to spruce up the envelope a bit to tie it altogether so I stamped the little dinosaur in Tuxedo Memento Black, PTI Pure Poppy and Summer Sunrise. Quick and simple - hope the little guy likes it!

Thanks for popping in - see you again real soon!

... you're a cuteasaurus ...
