Iris Fold - Dinosaur

Hi, everyone!  A warm welcome to my newest follower, Kristie Goulet - so nice to have you join me!

I normally don't blog about my iris folds, but the Dinosaur challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown inspired me to post my iris-folded dinosaur that I made for my young nephew.  The birthday stamp is an old wood-mount from StampCraft.  The dinosaur pattern is a freebie from Circle of Crafters.
