Birthday card using Lawn Fawn stamps

Hello everyone and happy hump day!  I have an adorable card to share with you today.
I finally messed around with some of my older stamp sets and stumbled 
upon my Simon Says Stamp Happy Every Day stamp set. 
It has this great solid stripe in it that I wanted to use to create my own rainbow pattern paper with. 
So that's where my first idea was born. 
I went through all of my ink and ended up choosing all Stampin' Up! ink for the stripes.

Here is a list of the colors I used:
Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, 
Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Perfect Plum
I cut my flag shape first from Neenah Solar White cardstock, then stamped my stripes across.
Using the MFT Pierced Circle Dies I cut a circle from the center.
Then I used my 1/8" hole punch to punch out two holes for my thread to eventually go through.
Then came the struggle of deciding on an image to use with my newly made rainbow paper.
Once I saw this Lawn Fawn dino staring up at me from the pile I knew he was the one!
As cliche and silly as that sounds it was soooo true.
 I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored him with my Copics.
And because I couldn't leave well enough alone I added some bling
with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to his rainbow
scales as well as every other stripe on the
rainbow pattern paper.

Rummaging through my stash of paper I chose Bazzill wax lips cardstock for my card base.
I had some scrap black recollections cardstock I needed to use up so I used that
to mat my flag pattern paper onto, leaving myself a small red border.
At the last minute I chose to emboss the sentiment using green and purple that I got in the clearance bin at Michaels (sorry I can't link to those)

Then for the inside of the card, I certainly couldn't waste that rainbow die cut circle so I stamped my sentiment on that using VersFine Onyx black ink.
The sentiment also came from the SSS Happy Every Day set that I used the stripe from earlier.
Stamped some little dino tracks using MFT Kraft Hybrid Ink across the bottom of inside of the card.
And there you have it! An adorable dino birthday card that could be given to anyone!
Hope you all enjoyed this card and I'll catch you back here next time.
 I'll be entering this card into the new Simon Wednesday Challenge:Anything Goes!
