this age looks good on you

I’m playing along with Paper Smooches’s monthly inspiration challenge. This month is layers!


I had fun making this one. The background is layered up with 6 colors of torn cardstock. I chose a blue pattern paper so that the dinosaur stands out. This sentiment was too fun not to pair with the dinosaur!

Thanks for taking a peek!
