Charlie's birthday card!

Hi there!

At the Through the Purple Haze Challenges this week

We are sponsored by the lovely Lacy Sunshine!

I had to share this card with you son was 7 last week and he is so proud of the card i made him i promised i would put it on  my blog!
Now he loves dinosaurs and frogs as well as favourite colour being green!

So i think i did a pretty good job considering it was many different shades of greens!

Well i didn't do too bad i used a Paper mill A4 Kraft card and halved it into A5 card blank i then used some green paper with swirls on it from my stash to start layering.  I  then mounted the coloured digi image that i got from Lacy Sunshine and is called pickles dinosaur ride on to brown card and added to the card.

After that i had much fun and frustration trying to use my Cameo for about the fourth time to  print a CHARLIE border and a Happy Birthday  with a seven in the middle and backed it with the same brown card i used to mount the digi on.

So all in all not too bad.....

I used the following copics to colour in the image:

Body YG 91,93,95,97,99
Toes E27, 23
Spots Y 00, 35, 38
Eyes B60, 63, 66
Grass YG 21, 23, 25 /06, 07, 09
Sky B 000, 00, 01, 02

So as you see plenty of green and Charlie has already added this and the rest of the cards he received into the memory box that covers 24 years of every little memento or memory we want to remember.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
