Dino-rific Gift Card Holder

This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Creative Wall Coverings. I found my inspiration from this gorgeous T REX MURAL. From there I decided to make another gift card holder for Friday's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE where we were to make any type of gift card holder as long as we included choc chip or close to cocoa and a butterfly. Just as luck would have it today's OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Sketch was just perfect for what I needed. I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Real Kraft Chocolate for my color combo. My images are from 2 different sets and both can be found at TREEHOUSE STAMPS. They are Dino-Rific and Prehistoric Pals. I love them both. I stamped the tree and grass in close to cocoa on the kraft front layer. The T-Rex was stamped on white with espresso ink then colored with copic markers and popped up on the white 2x2 square panel. I used some real red patter paper and the butterfly is punched in kraft, real red and close to cocoa. I stamped the 2 sentiments on the inside panel with real red and choc chip stamped off. The kraft panel at the bottom is for the gift card to fit it. I love how this turned out and hope you do too.
