A more masculine card

Good evening.  Won't be getting much done on the internet tonight.  Our limit is certainly up and everything is happening at a snails pace ... an elderly snail at that!

I have created a card tonight that I am extremely happy with.  I have spent ages on this card and really tried to co-ordinate my papers and then coloured my image.

I hope you like it.  I have used Dustin Pike's Cera and coloured the gorgeous Dino in Copics YG91, YG93, YG95, YR61, YR65, YR68, C00, W00, W1 and of course some spica on the hat and spots.

I'm really happy with the candle on the cake.  I used Y00 and then BV31 and for the flame I used Y17, YR16 and Y00.

The cuttlebug was used to emboss the orange background cardstock and the rest is fairly basic .... just lots of thought into colours.

I hope you enjoy this delicious little morsel .... mmmm I would love a piece of that cake .... it would be so yummy in my tummy :)
