A dinosaur easel card

We had some pretty wicked weather here in western PA last night. I had so many things I wanted to do last night but didn't start because I was pretty sure the power was going to go out. It stayed on. I did start bringing down some of the Christmas stuff. :)

Today I am sharing with you the first easel card I have made. I would definitely say they look far more complex than they are! Or, at least that is how this one felt to me!

A girlfriend of ours and BF use the saying RAWR to say I love you from time to time. She had a picture as her computer wallpaper of a dinosaur with the words "RAWR-It Means I love You in dinosaur" She told me the story and I offered to make her a card.  Here is what we came up with .  The dinosaur is cut from Create a Critter.

The paper is from two different DCWV stacks.
The buttons are from my jar of buttons. :)
Here is a side view.

Here is link I found over at SplitCoast Stampers. If you have never made an easel card I would check this link out and at least bookmark it for later! I found it very useful!

Thanks for stopping by! I need to say rawR to each and every one of YOU, our readers!  Thanks so much for your comments and encouragement!!!
