January Mystery Image Swap

Did you faint?  Two blog posts by me in one week?  (and I'm not even late for this one...)

Today is the reveal day for our Mystery Image Swap on SCS.  Kate is our host and she chose this adorable little guy from SU:
He's colored with a combination of pencils & gamsol and SU markers.  I went kinda fantasy on his colors, hope that's ok!

The papers are a little glittery and from a pack by DCWV called "Nana's Nursery, Baby Girl". I punched an oversized border punch by Martha Stewart, cut it in half and pieced it along the edge of the green DP to make that edge.






Here's a view from an angle, trying to show the glitter on the DP's.  However I doubt that it shows up well.



Thank you Kate for getting me outside of my usual zone with this fun little dinosaur image!  I hope that you and the other swappers like my card and thanks also for being a great hostess for this round!  Can't wait to get these back and see what the mystery image is for the next round.
Thanks for dropping by and thanks for leaving comments.  Wishing you all a great day!
