Papertake 'Die Cuts' Challenge
The challenge at Papertakes this week is to use die cuts or punched shapes on your card. I used the Cricut to cut this cute dinosaur and the tree. I added highlights to the dinosaur with a brown felt pen and an Andriondak Pesto inkpad, which I applied with cotton buds and a piece of kitchen towel! The papers are all from Basic Grey and I embossed the green piece with the Cuttlebug to look like scales. The sentiment is from Studio G and the 3 orange brads are from my stash.
