A very Fergus birthday

Since I was in the masculine birthday mode, I decided to make another using the Cardpatterns sketch for this week.  Introducing.... Fergus with Cupcake!  Fergus is another one of my Wild Rose Studio stamps from Paper and Such.  He wasn't in my first order, I must admit... dinosaurs are not my favorite as I've always found them difficult to color.  However, I saw so many cute cards that people have changed my mind. I'll just have to learn dinosaur colors and that's that!  LOL

I pulled out some DP that had some dinos on it for color inspiration.  I *think* it is Paper Studio, but I cut it up before I remembered to look at the back. (Bad Alison).  I'm really liking the grass green and sweet mango combo as well, so I went with it again.  Boys like colors.. right?  The image was stamped on white, colored with copics and cut out.  Little Fergus has popdots underneath to make him stand out a little more.  In case I run into a girl who likes dinos... I added a little sparkle to the cupcake using a Copic Spica pen.    Hope he brings a little smile to your face, he sure does to mine!
