Creative Belli Challenge #112

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is a fun one....use animals on your project!! This can include butterflies, critters, puppy dogs, lady bugs......what ever your little heart desires!!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

I have several little boy birthday cards to make so this challenge was perfect for my DGS Cody...he loves dinosaurs!!

The dinosaurs from Our Craft Lounge's Dino-Mite set were colored with Copics, cutout, and attached to the background that was created with a grass die from MFT's and a sponged sky. The designer paper is from My Minds Eye called Abby Road and the sentiment from the same set and a button with twine finishes it off.
This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Dream Valley Challenge - anything goes
2. Delightful Challenges - use your scraps (scraps were used for the grass, sentiment, and the dinos)
3. Shannon's Sentiments - fussy cutting
4. Wags 'n Whiskers - punches (sentiment and star)

Recipe:
Stamps: Our Craft Lounge Dino-Mite
Paper: White, Kraft, Really Rust, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, My Minds Eye Abby Road dp
Ink: Baja Breeze, Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Oval and Star Punches, Grass Die, Button, Twine
Be sure to stop by the other Belli Girls blogs to see what they made for you today....you will find lots of awesome inspiration!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC112 in the keywords section.
