Three Birthday Cards with Dinoroar Stamp Set

Hi Blogging Friends!!

I sat at my desk today and still had a pile of stuff left over from making my Valentine Dinoroar card, but it's not Valentine's anymore so I made Birthday Cards instead. All three are different. I have been making 4 cards every time I do a challenge so I have more cards to sell at the Variety Mall where I have a card rack.

The Scallop paper on the bottom is from Twitterpated. I just happen to have it already on my desk so I added it.

I put a bow on this Dinos head to make it a girl!! So darn Cute!
This Scallop is from the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die.

I used the Labels Framelits here, but I cut one the same size in Real Red then cut it in half and put it behind the image.
How I colored in the Dinosaur's was to use the marker first all around the edges, then got my aqua painter and ink pad and water colored the inside of the animal.

I love the rosette decorative strip! It makes the work fast!!

This one I gave red toe nails, just for fun.

I am adding this card to the Challenge Blog  "Especially Made". The Challenge this week is use three kinds of paper. So go check it out girls!! Thanks Ashley!!

I love all of these cards and the color combo you used! The coloring looks great, too, by the way. :) This card would make a great submission for the challenge happening over at my blog this week - create a card using three different papers. Thanks for sharing!
