National Fossil Day ~ CCEE1942

Hi friends!

It must be my birthday - it's National Fossil Day!
Hee hee!

I sure feel that old most days
with a hip that doesn't want to walk and a foot that won't work ;)

It's time for a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers blog!
I'm the hostess for the month of October and thought it would be neat
to showcase cards based on Nat'l Fossil Day, which was yesterday.
  A fossil is a preserved impression of a once-living thing
 from a past geological age, including plants, animals, shells, and more.
  The challenge this week is to create a card including anything that has been found as a fossil -- dinosaurs, leaves, amber, footprints, etc.

For my card today,
I've used a sweet stamp set called Prehistoric
Ohhhh I absolutely adore this stamp company!
I think this set is retired now ~ it was released in 2017 .. I think!

 I stamp/cut/colored the images with copic markers
 and set those aside to create the scene.
I used distress oxide inks, blended to create a night sky,
The little stars are a white signo pen just dotted about
and the mountains are from a die-namic from My Favorite Things.

In hindsight, I needed a bigger card base... one that was longer!
The card seems a bit squished now that I see it,
trying to fit all the focal points on but it's still sweet :)

You can see the design team cards here on the blog post,
as well as link up yours, too!

We'd LOVE to see what you make with the fossil theme!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
