Happy Birthday Russ!

My grandson Russell turns 6 tomorrow and we are having his party today.  One of his favorite things is dinosaurs, so I made this card for him.  I used my paper scraps & Cricut Expression to cut it out using the Dinosaur Tracks cartridge.  I haven't made a card without a colored image in a while, but I didn't really have any dinosaur stamps, and I thought this cartridge would be perfect.  I just kind of made up the scene with the mountains & clouds.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I chalked around the edges of all the cuts except the balloon.  I thought it would be really cute to make the dinosaur wobble, Russell should get a kick out of it!  The only problem is the wobbly thingamajig was a little too large for him.  It's sticking out behind the dinosaur in a couple of places, and even though it looks horrible in the picture here, you really can't tell at all looking at it in person.  I printed the sentiment for the inside of the card from my computer.  I hope he likes it!!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
