Dinosaurus birthday!

One of our grandson's turns 3 today so, among all the things I have been making and not blogging, I thought I would share his birthday card...

We bought him dinosaur-themed books so that dictated the subject matter! I started off with Basic Grey Archaic dino stamps but the skeleton style of those didn't seem suitable for a 3-yr-old so I turned instead to my old CuttleKids dies and cut the layers of the dinos and trees from them. Then I used the Sketch Saturday layout #221 and it all fell in to place! Also entering the Basic Grey challenge (anything goes) despite only using a bit of Basic Grey in the end!
Used: Tim Holtz (Lost and Found) for the dinosaurs and writing; Bazzill cardstock and Basic Grey (Basics spotted paper) for the background layers;  kraft card blank; glossy accents; Diamond Stickles; EK Success scalloped border punch; ColorBox chalk ink (Chestnut Roan); Perfect Peals Mist (Kiwi).
