Have a Dyno-mite birthday!

I had so many ideas when I saw the Sketch Challenge at SCS this morning while at work but when I got home, it seems like nothing worked with what I had planned. From what image or colors should I use but I should say I was pretty happy in the end. What do you think?

I started by stamping the main image Dinosaur Egg from Whipper Snapper on Whisper White card stock, cut it out and popped the image using stamping dimensional and layered it with Lovely Lilac and Pumpkin Pie card stock. The panels was run through Cuttlebug with Tiny Bubbles embossing folder and layered it with the same card stock with the main image. The base card was stamped with Background Basics with Versamark. This is supposed to be a baby card but I didn't like the color combination for a baby card, so I added a balloon from Birthday Bear stamp (<-- remember this card?) and added crystal effects.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!

Stamp: Dinosaur Egg and balloon from Birthday Bear by Whipper Snapper Design, Sentiment from Paper Tray by PTI

Paper: Whisper White, Lovely Lilac, Pumpkin Pie and Certain Celery from Stampin' Up

Ink: Jet Black Staz-on and Prisma water-color pencils

Accessories: Cuttlebug, Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, Crystal stickles, Twin and Pumpkin Pie gross grain ribbon
