My First Dustin Pike Challenge!

I am super excited to announce that I am entering my FIRST Pike's Playground Challenge over on Dustin Pike's Blog!  I have become a huge fan of his digi's and all artwork and recently I made my first Purchase of Digis!  I have only dabbled with freebies but broke down and bought some of Dustin's while he had a crazy awesome sale! 

My Little 8 yr old cousin had a birthday today and I made him a card using Dustin Pike's Dino Birthday Set.  It turned out so cute and I had a really good time coloring!  His Mom loved the card and I received several comments on it.

My interpretation of the Sketch
Front of Card: I didn't modify this digi much other than adding Jeweled eyes which are larger than the originals.  I did add a glitter paint to the Blue areas.

Inside of Card:  I really enjoyed coloring a full scene digi.  I will be looking for more of these.  Glitter Paint has been added to the Dino's eyes and the Bones.

Products Used:
  • Cardstocks- Brown-Recollections, Green- Recollections
  • Pattern Paper-Recollections Great Outdoors
  • Digis- Dustin Pike's Dino Birthday
