Meet Dudley

WELL!  This week has been a totally different story weatherwise, with hailstones, high winds, lashing rain and even snow! ... so no 'Al Fresco' crafting at all.  Much safer to stay snuggled in the craft room surrounded by loads'a' luvverly stash to keep me warm.
This cute little chap is called Dudley and he and the oversized button are Pollycraft images, (actually they're both freebies from ages ago).  This card was supposed to be my entry for their 'Chocklit Challenge - 133' ... but I missed the deadline.  Whoops!  However, I reckon he's still cute enough to be worth showing and fortunately for me, Papertake Weekly Challenge is 'Anything Goes' with the option of monotone, so my Dudley card in shades of brown should qualify as a valid entry.
He's been coloured with Promarkers before being cut out with deckle edged scissors and glittered up with green stickles, likewise the button.  The papers are 6" x 6" Papermania - Simply Elegant, which I've had for a very long time and only recently rediscovered while looking for something else ... a very common occurrence amongst crafters.  Strips were cut from 2 complementary sheets, matted onto dark brown card and attached to the front of the card blank and then Dino was added with foam pads to give him a little lift.
Inside, is simply decorated with a a strip of patterned paper, matted onto brown and finished with a stamped greeting.
I'd also like to enter my Dudley card into the following challenges ...

Just Keep On Creating - #1 Anything Goes
Papercraft Star - #91 Anything Goes
Make It Monday - #83 Anything Goes

Hi Max,

This is just the cutest card, who ever thought that dinasours could be cute :). I love all the papers you have used as well, it all comes together perfectly, one of those cards which is great flr a guy or girl.

I hope the weather improves in your neck of the woods, it sounds horrible but also a good excuse to get some crafting done.

Thanks so much for your encouraging words as well, it means a lot to me. Wishing you a Very Happy Easter :)
