Dinosaurs and the like!

Hi Everyone, my card for you today is one I made for our Great Nephew, who has been into Dinosaurs since very small, funny thing is that most of the boys in the family have been the same. He draws them well too and while visiting recently, was talking about, wait for it! the Pteranodon, I had to look it up, luckily it came under the same label as dinosaurs LOL.

"Bird" Freebie, Kids colouring pages
I coloured the background and the "bird" digitally,
 it was placed onto acetate to "fly".

added ready coloured images of dinosaurs to the bottom of the card
 over a ready coloured background image by Hugware.

I had a look on the web for verses, found these and cased them.
The pillow box, with the verse, I cut on the Cameo, 
it has chocolate mini eggs in it, 
perfect as they are around in the shops now.

 The insert is before it was printed with another cased verse.
His name is Alfie.

Glad to say he was thrilled.
