Card for a special child!!

My granddaughter will be three very soon so I made her a special card. She wants a dinosaur theme for her birthday so I incorporated dinosaurs in her card!! I added some watercolour wash at the top of the card to simulate sky and added a bit of green as I went lower to simulate jungle. Added some ripped layers of green cardstock to create a horizon and added some jaggedly cut dark green at the very bottom for grass. I cut the tree tops free hand and added embossed tree trunks!! A bit of watercolour on the trees to add dimension as well as some scoring to allow them to fold a bit. I used 3D foam tape underneath to help them look 3D. Added the dinosaur crossing sign (internet) which I laser printed and added with 3D foam tape. The inside has two pop ups - a dinosaur and the greeting with a bit of free form cut grass. The background is a laser printed scene which I found on the internet.
A bit of a change up for me but I like the way it turned out. It is already headed her way!!!
