Double Challenge for me today!!

Good Morning Everyone!! I needed a card for this evening for my son's little buddy for his birthday. He LOVES dinosaurs and he is turning 7 so I wanted something not too babyish!! hehe!! Kids are so funny!! My card today is for the Treehouse Stamps Thursday Challenge, THT004, which was to use some sort of texture. Please join the fun, come visit OUR BLOG. I also did today's Ways to Use it challenge, WT225, over at Splitcoast Stampers. It was to use cardboard. I decided to punch a circle out of now that was tricky, I had to trim it up cause my punch didn't like it much. I then ran it through the cuttlebug and inked the edges. Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great Thursday!!!
Here's the recipe
Stamped Setiment in Chocolate Chip Ink
I colored him with copics and cut him out and popped him up
