SMC Dino Reading

Good evening everyone! Sorry I am a bit behind this week. My poor DD is still sick...it's been about a month now...I think we will be going back to the Dr's soon. As if that wasn't enough, I have picked up a virus myself and have been pretty miserable this week. Anyway, I have finally gotten something done!
Here is:

Dino Reading from Sew Many Cards
I got on the net a bit earlier in the week and searched out some challenges and made this card with them in mind. However, I didn't pay much attention to all the days they were posted so we'll see how many of them this still works for.


One specific challenge was to make a bookmark card so that's the base of my card. This is actually a really simple card to make, so if you know any readers out there I recommend this one. I got the directions from SCS here. This is colored with copics, sorry I didn't take a pic, but I will list them up here later. This is the first time I've done a shadowing of any kind and I've seen this one around, so I thought I'd try it out. I really had no idea what I was doing...I just starting making little dots. What do you think, does it look right...any tips?

Here is the bookmark part. I've left room for personalization or a little saying, I haven't decided which yet. This is going to my little brother whom often feels left out cause he's so much younger, so I thought he'd enjoy this. I guess that's about it. I've left this pretty simple since it's for a male child. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week!

Hi Autumn, this is such a clever card and quite possibly the best use of resizable digis I've seen. I'm completely WOW'd by it! Your coloring is perfect, too. :) Thanks for joining our Beary Sweet Challenge - good luck!

Hope your feeling better hun.
I think your dotty background is just fab, I keep seeing it on cards and thinking I'll give it ago, but don't want to ruin an image...must remember to do it first lol
Gorgeous colouring and fab idea.

Thank you for joining us over at 'The Crazy Challenge' this week!!
