Independent T-Rex

So I sat down this morning to make a birthday card for my brother, and instead, I got...this.

Uh, not what I was expecting but I rolled with it!  This T-Rex just *insisted* on being the focal point for today's card.  I used the great sketch from Fab Friday:

I didn't want to add a black cardstock border around all my layers, but I did want them to have a bit more definition, so I lightly dragged the edges of the layers in Basic Black ink which is just the look I was going for.  I didn't do the top edge and maybe I should have?  But I think it makes the colors play nice together.  Speaking of colors, they're courtesy of the Color Throwdown:

Love that picture too.  I used Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, and Soft Sky for my SU!-ified colors.  Other than cutting out Miss Independent, this card came together PDQ.  And I know just who should get it, so I think I'll go write a message in it to Emma and Abby and get this in the mail today :)  What 5- and 8-year-olds don't like getting mail?

Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  No Bones About It
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Paper:  Soft Sky, Thick Whisper White, Wild Wasabi & Pumpkin Pie DSP
Accessories:  Dimensionals

The blacked ink edges are the first detail I noticed....perfect way to define the separate layered without adding more cardstock. Well done! Love that T Rex as the focal element of the sketch! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Oh, you crack me up! You know, I think a T-Rex by its nature is always going to hijack his setting, lol - and in this case, he does it quite well - fun colors, and fun little extras - I always forget what a great accent sponging can bring! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
