Springy dinosaurs for a four-year old

I was asked to make a birthday for a four-year old boy incorporating some springy dinosaurs.

I used a card blank that had cut out corners on the right, covering with some kraft sentiments card and cutting corners on the left to match the right so that the red sentiment card inside would show on the corners. The silver and red shapes were from a Kanban kit. The springy dinosaurs were from Poundland - some time ago, wish they still did them as I only have a few left.

I loosely followed the sketch given for Fetch a sketch 48:

This is for:

Aud sentiments 79: birthday
Corrosive 172: life's special occasions
All kinds of cards 78: cards in a special form
Fairytale 66: a very special occasion
That craft place: for a child
My time to craft 219: using kraft
Created with love 38: call of the wild
Shopping our stash 98: dollar or bargain bin find - the springy dinosaurs came from Poundland
Card crafters circle 72: boys to men
