Dino Back to School


                   


I decided to go clean and simple with this one again. It is something I've always found a challenge, the urge to add something to 'balance it out' lol. I wanted to keep it bright too, as it's for my 5yr old Grandson. I'd saved some blue plastic parcel banding (they put it on heavy box like parcels that are sent by carrier). I was going to cut the 'teeth' pattern in it and use it as the 'ribbon'. However some people, ones I've considered my nearest and dearest, don't share my recycling fervour. Some people  actually go into your handbag (purse) and  take what you've saved and throw it away....I ask you!! LOL

I'm a little happier with my colouring this time - spent two days on it lol - but don't feel I got the beam of light right. Still it's not bending any more at least.

My Receipe:-

Papers ...Various 8x8 scrapbook, from stash
Sentiment ... OWHdigi freebie
Alphabet Sticker ... Anita
Brad ... Stash
Colouring ... WH Smith Blendable pencils

This is such an adorable card. I can't believe that is a rubber band that you used for ribbon. Aren't you the clever one. I do believe that you are way to critical of your coloring. It is very well done. Your grandson is going to love this card. I know that I do. Thanks so much for joining us at I Did It Creations this week.
