Dinoroar Kids Birthday Card for Paper Players Watercolor Challenge

Hi Blogging Friends!!

I stayed up tonight to take a look at the Retired list that went up 11:00pm my time. Wow that is one long list of things I love but, this Dinoroar stamp set was not on the list. Yeah! I am kind of happy to see some of the stamp sets go because, the new stuff is going to be "FABULOUS"!!! (in a high pitched singing voice)

I sat down and drew out this sketch just for this card. The color combo of Pool Party and Soft Suede is perfect for the Dino, I just love his tummy the Pool Party color. I used the ink pads and an aqua painter for my watercoloring. The stamp set comes with a really nice grass stamp, it looks hand painted that is what I love about it. I had to use some glimmer paper because, kids love it!.

This is week three of my Guest Designer spot, only two more left. (insert sad face) I have been having a really great time joining the gals. Jaydee is our Hostess this week, thanks girl for this challenging challenge!!  
I can't say it enough, "go to your craft room or your crafty space and make a card to join us!!"

I used a 1 1/4 circle punch to put the glimmer paper inside the button with an antique brad.

I knew I wanted to spell out the word "Dino" with my Scrabble tiles when I bought them. I was trying to think of short words that would be great for cards.

Just in case you did not see the first time, this is 3 boxes of Scrabble tiles that I found at a junk store. I think I paid around $10.00 or less for all three games.

I like the detail of your button. Wouldn't have thought to cover it with a 1 1/4" circle. Very cute kid card.

This is absolutely "Dino-riffic" Shirley!! Love that t-rex with the glitter paper accents. The Scrabble tile letters totally make the best accent EVER! Fresh, fun and Jurassic-tastic!! Hope you had a fun weekend! Hugs! :)

Shirley, this is so stinkin' cute! From the adorable dino with his Pool Party belly to those fabulous Scrabble tiles. Great job!

What a fun card! Using the Scrabble tiles is such a great touch! Your dino is water-colored beautifully and I love his Pool Party belly. Great layout and what a fun addition of the glimmer paper inside the button.

It doesn't get any cuter or more fun than this card! Your use of glitter paper is so clever! Absolutely perfect in every way!
