This is another make from my Birthday Bash Workshop which I held a few weeks ago now. I may have slightly over estimated what could be achieved in the time stop laughing at the back there! but we all had a laugh and a giggle, not to mention my lovely husband bought us all Gu chocolate rolls and rocky road to snack on! Bliss!

Anyway, to crafts: here is a make using the Dinoroar set, and I have paired it with a whole medley of greens, and a touch of Calypso Coral to add vibrancy.

and a close up for you, so you can see the oh-so-versatile linen thread, and where the white rectangle has been edged very slightly with Bashful Blue ink - I really think this helps it to 'pop' a bit more. Inside the card it reads ROAR! (That means Happy Birthday in Dinosaur) - so sweet and perfect for a young boy (or a grown up one with a sense of humour...)

I hope you like it and Happy Crafting x
