Dinosaur Birthday Roar! Saturday Sketch Challenge 250

Good Evening Friends!

This week's card, I stamped about 3 weeks ago.  My daughter had a birthday party to go to and I really thought this would be a good sketch to "man up"  I knew immediately that my dinosaur would sit in the front on the circle panel in the middle. 

I got to thinking about the big circle on the far right and thought... "I need dino feet to make muddy prints!"  I don't have anything that could like that, so I grabbed my medallion stamp.  I really love this background stamp. I inked it up with blue ink and stamped it.  I wanted it to hit the edge of my card to mimic the sketch more closely, but I didn't want the pretty flourishes to "girl up" my manly man boy card!  So here's my creation!  What do you think of my Roar-Birthday?  I tied the manly ribbon in a knot and added my sentiment on some leftover scraps.  I save all my 1/2" strips of white in case I need a ribbon banner sentiment.

So ~ for my measurements, I went smaller.  4 1/4" square card.
Base is 8 1/2" x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
layer 2: 4"square
Layer 3: is that fabulous striped ribbon,
Layer 4: 2 1/2" circle punch
Layer 5: cut dinosaur. 

Easy peasy, rice and cheesy.. :)  Did I just say that?  If you're still reading, I hope I made you smile!
