I have to do 11 family birthdays this month and this is one of them. I'll show the rest in later posts.
I happened upon Colour Throwdown's colour mix for this week so used that as my base colours. I added Pink Petticoat's Little Dots paper and linked it to the spots, coloured the dinosaur to match and shaded him, then used PP blossom tree as I thought it quite prehistoric in this instance. The flowers are PP gingham, I added a wood overlay by Marisa Lerin onto the tree, don't know why, I just liked it. The background I made and coloured to match the tree, but was lightened, I added texture to the background. The "spot" font is EwieD. The bird also has PP chevron paper added to the wing. I have done all this in Photoshop. The "Aspotosaurus" is 3D'd and so are the flowers and the 5. It's on an 8 x 8 card.
