Walk the Dinosaur Girl

Hi crafty friends, this is my first card for The Pencil Case Challenge.

Our lovely challenge is to help inspire you to try out Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils - if you've never tried these amazingly lush pencils then check out all the links at the top of the page on the blog to find out more. They are top quality pencils which need minimum blending - if you're a Polychomo/Prisma fan you really need to check them out because we have all switched from those brands because we find Lyra's much faster to work with, easier to blend and superb colours and lightfastness that is superior to most of the others on the market - and they're an amazing price too!

Our challenge is Anything Goes and you can use any product would love to see your entries
Here's my inspiration from our lovely sponsor Polkadoodles, this cutie is from the Sticks and Bones Collection and she's Walk the Dinosaur Girl, of course because Dinos need a lot of excercise to grown big and strong and fight off the TRex's.
