Prehistoric Party

We went to a 50th birthday party (or a "prehistoric party" hehe) last night. The guest of honor loves dinosaurs and at times has even been known to refer to friends and family by dinosaur names. (usually after a few drinks) So in turn we call him Donasaurus...hense the banner on this card I made for him. On the inside it says, "50 but not yet fossilized". Even tho I'm sure this set was designed for kids, I knew I had to use it for Don's 50th birthday card! He thought it was cool.

So that I could include both the banner and the large partying dinosaur images I designed this card to fit into a business sized envelope. So it measured 4x 9 1/4.

Stamps: Prehistoric Party, Celebrate Everything, Flannel Plaid background
Card stock: Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White & Wild Wasabi DP from Hostess Prints Pack
Ink: Black Stazon, Tempting Turquoise, Purely Pomegranate & various to watercolor
Accessories: Aqua painter, brads, ticket corner punch
