Anything Goes

My dad recently hit his 60th birthday, so I put together this card using a dinosaur image from Bugaboo Stamps: it is called

This is the outside of the card. For this, I used a bunch of cuts from the Cricut cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up. I did a lot of inking to the edges of everything, and the volcano lava is paper glaze. I was originally going to put my Bugaboo image on the outside of this card, too, but I liked it so much the way it is that I decided to embellish the inside of the card with the image, instead.
My image is colored with my Prismacolor Pencils, and I used the Gamsol Technique. I was so happy with the way this little guy turned out! I cut him out, and I added him toa prehistoric background image that is by Dustin Pike. I had typed up my sentiment on the image before printing it up.
I was very happy with the final result of this card, and even more happy about how much my dad liked it! He is a typical dad - doesn't usually say a bunch, but I could tell he was pleased, even if I was reminding him of his age! lol!
