Thanks for Being a Friend-a-saurus!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing with you a fun thank you and friendship card that can be sent to both kids and adults.  This is such a cute little card it just makes me smile looking at it.  I was supposed to have used this card today for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge but someone feel asleep last night while editing photos in their chair.   And, let's just say didn't get it submitted in time for the design teams posts to go live this morning.  I thought it was just to cute of a card not to share it with you  all today.  
I used the Dino Days stamp set and matching dies to create today's card.  I started out with a piece of whisper white cardstock (4 x 5 1/2) and stamped the dinosaurs in Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Lovely Lipstick, and Old Olive going down the side.  I added the little footprints in Pretty Peacock to add to the story of the card.  I wanted it to show that they where all moving in a pack.  Must friends when together will also travel in a pack or group.
I then stamped the Brontosaurus in Pretty Peacock and used the matching dies to cut him out.  I wanted him to look like he was in front of the herd so I popped him up on a few dimensionals.  Since He actually would have been taller than the other dinosaurs anyway and in the foreground I knew this had to be done.  Plus it allowed for my layering to work a little better.  When I stamped the Old Olive dinosaur I got him a little close to the Lovely Lipstick one and his head touched the body and didn't show up as well as I would have liked.  But that's okay its a handmade card not a card from Hallmark.  It adds character right?
I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on the bottom left of the card and added some of the Dinoroar Enamel Shapes around it.  I wanted to make sure it didn't get lost with such a right sided heavy card.  I also added a small strip of the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card to tie everything in and to add a little interest.  Originally, I had the same strip of paper going across the front of the card where the footprints are but I thought it was a little to much and took away from the rainbow of dinosaurs; so I removed it and just left the tracks.
So my advice for you today is don't be afraid to edit some things out once you do it if it's just not working.  After getting everything stamped I added the focal image to a Pretty Peacock Mat (5 3/8 x 4 1/8) and the card front was then ready for the Pineapple Punch card base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  I added a whisper white inside to finish off the card.  Here's my color combo for this card you can pin this image to your Pinterest board to save it for later.
