Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 105

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC105 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Hey look - it's more boy birthday for you!  This is the last of the birthday boy cards for just a while, but it has been really fun getting to make boy cards.  Jen Tapler is my hero - her little boy cards are always so stinkin' cute and I'm copying her sweet and simple style today.  Ever since I first stamped this little dinosaur from Kid At Heart, I knew I wanted to use it for a little boy's birthday card.  I think he's just the cutest thing ever!  Especially since he matches Andrew's birthday cake from last week.  Adorable!  I paired the dino with a sentiment from Sweet Celebration and kept the layering pretty simple with papers from Report Card by October Afternoon.  The dino is stamped in Olive Pastel Fluid Chalk ink and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Easy peasy! 

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks for taking on the challenge this week!
