Pinky the Dinosaur

My friend Tiana informed me that wee little girl children like dinosaurs just as much as boys do, so I made today's card for her daughter's birthday later this month.


Dinosaurs can be pink!  I just got the gold and silver metallic shapes that replaced Candy Dots, and if you've heard that you can't really move them once they touch the paper then I can tell you that's true.  The top one scooted a little bit, but the bottom one just would NOT move so it's crooked, but really is a newly-minted 8-year-old going to notice?  I think not.

Pinky the Dinosaur started with the flamingo-licious color combination from Cupcake Inspirations:


I actually just got Pop of Paradise that has a flamingo in it, but I couldn't resist stamping a pink dinosaur today.  You'll get to see the flamingo soon enough, I'm sure.  I've been struggling with color combinations for Flirty Flamingo just as much as Sweet Sugarplum, but I really liked this combination.  To SU-ify it, I used Pool Party and Cucumber Crush with the aforementioned Flamingo.

Next up is today's Freshly Made Sketch:


I made my card a standard A2 rather than square, I don't do square cards much.

Anyway, I need to get to the post office and the grocery store...and maybe some lunch too.  Ta-ta for now, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  No Bones About It
Ink:  Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo
Paper:  Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Metallic Enamel Shapes, Lots of Labels Framelits, Dimensionals
