Carter's bday card

so...Carter had his bday...and we just did our traditional "date"...which consists of dinner out (kid's choice)...he chose Provino's...a "rather" fine Italian restaurant...we tell him he is our "classy" kid...the rest of them are McDonald's/Chick Fila kind of kiddos...but it was yummy, for sure...then onto the quest of his gift!...after a few different stops he settled on the idea of a digital camera in..yes...blue...his choice...again...we TRY very hard to give em what they want!..within the budget constrictions, of course...(poo)...
here was his homemade card....it is easy to come up with something for the girls...but now that he is getting older..i am stretching my imagination to not be "babyish" or "girlish"...
i downloaded an image from my computer...and cut it out for the pattern....i then used it to cut 3 layers of cardboard and cardstock...gluing all the peices together...i also made extra peices for the tail, legs, arms and face...(i made the face a slightly different color)


here's the side view so you can see how it is standing up...you can see the little tab between the dinasaur and the flap which keeps it from spreading completely open and falling down....
so...remember...you can take any image and turn it into  a card....
ENJOY
