Dino for Dylan

Well, today I wanted to play with another of my new sets, Prehistoric Pals. I bought this set mainly because our Vacation Bible School is next week and I am teaching the 4-5K class, I thought this set would be a fun way to decorate the kid's bags and the classroom. Our theme this year is dinos. One of my students will be having a birthday next week so I thought I would get a jump start and get his card made today while I still have the time. My schedule for the rest of the week is pretty hectic so I will probably not post until next week, depending on how VBS goes ;).

So I decided to check out the sketch challenge for the day. It turned out to be perfect to use this set. Just to show that I make mistakes and learn how to fix them. When I went to stamp the simple Happy Birthday in the lower right corner it was crooked. So I decided to add a couple more crooked ones to make it look like it was done on purpose...sneaky!

I could not figure out what I wanted on the second back panel and I thought another image would be too much. So I did the dry embossing like I had mentioned last week. I actually ordered a dry embossing template last week and may be doing more of that.

Well, I hope you all have a great Holiday weekend!
