Dinosaur circles

I love this image from Pollycraft - I'm happy with my colouring but I'm not sure about my card today.  I think that I may have liked it better if I'd used a second patterned paper rather than a plain background but I didn't want it to look too "over the top".

The image was a previous Pollycraft Friday Freebie - this week's is a lovely little cottage image.  Pop over to the Pollycraft blog to have a look.

I tried to mimic the patterned paper and the dinosaur by punching some smaller circles around the image.

It could just be that it is not a girly card covered with glitter and gems - which is the type I love to make.   Think I may be having glitter withdrawal symptoms again!

I am going to enter it into three challenges:

Totally Papercrafts - sketch (love the layout!)
Allsorts - Animals

Thanks for looking and I hope the next card will be a bit better!!!
