Happy birthday from dino paradise


This card came to me in a split second when I saw the sketch over at My Favourite Things. I saw a sunset and partying dinos immediately. And I knew they would have to wear party hats. I can only imagine the party the dinos will have after dark. The theme for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is paradise. Right now for me, paradise would be a hot sunset under palm trees instead of an icy car on a freezing cold morning. I'm sick and tired of coming down with my gazillionth cold this winter. I want a party hat, hot sun, palm trees and maybe a cold drink. That's what I thought about when I inked the background for this card. I would also like to link up with Lawnscaping's Birthday Celebration for their 100th challenge, how cool is that! Happy 100 LawnScaping, and here's to at least 100 more! I'm also linking up at Addicted to Stamps where the challenge is to make your mark.
