I'm back again :)

I told you I would be back with another post today......okay, I'm really glad I was able to come through with it :) Not that I lie, I despise lying, but I had Mount Laundry that had to be started and I didn't really feel great this morning, so I took a little nap in between making this card and working on the laundry. I feel a little bit better now, just still tired :( Oh well.

This is from the soon to be released "Eric and Chrissy - Go Prehistoric" set from CC Designs! It's so cute!! I knew I had to make a fairly simple card so I only used a few of the stamps from the set. You will have to go to the ATS blog to see Eric and Chrissy. Cute, cute, cute!!

My card uses plain cardstock for the base and Basic Grey Archaic for the dp. I cut the one with dinosaurs on it in the shape of a big diamond and then cut that in half and put the inside half toward the outside of the card....clear as mud??? Next, I wrapped the ribbon around the middle and tied a square knot. The rusty colored paper is from a DCWV card stack and I cut it with my quickutz diamond die and then embossed it with the swiss dots from cuttlebug, then I took chestnut roan ink and rubbed it along the outside of the diamond as well as lightly on the top of all the little dots. I stamped the dinosaur and bones in versafine black and colored them with Copics. I stamped the sentiment in versafine sepia and punched it out with my McGill window punch. Oh, I almost forgot that I added dew drops....but then again I'm sure you're surprised at that. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by again. Have a fabulous day!
