You are Awesome

Good morning. I haven't had many chances to create a card for a challenge in a while. The other night I couldn't sleep so I got busy at my craft table and I actually made three cards. Today I'm sharing the one I did for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge

I had some fun with the Cuteasaurus set which has been in my not yet used box for a while. I paper pieced the main body of the dinosaur and colored the spikes with Copic markers and then fussy cut out.  I stamped the palm tree twice, colored the trunks with Copics and then fussy cut out them out as well. I then stamped the leaves portion of the image onto patterned paper, cut out and then secured over the original image with a mini brad, using dimensional dots for a 3d effect. I attached everything onto a circle cut with a Lil' Inker Designs die. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background piece which was also cut with a Lil' Inker Designs die. The patterned paper all came from the Pebbles Seen and Noted pad.

Products: Paper Smooches stamps, Pebbles dp, Bazzill and PTI cs, Lil' Inker Designs dies, Memento and Simon Says inks, Copic Markers
Copics: Dinosaur-R11, R14, R17; Tree-E53, E55, E57, W2

I'm thrilled to have something to show for my insomnia besides dark circles under my eyes!

I'm also entering this into Darnell's NBUS challenge.
