A quartet of dinosaur cards!...

Passion for Promarkers have 'prehistoric' as their theme this week and I immediately thought of these images from Melon Headz. They are freebies and can be found here and here. Do pop over and have a look at the Melon Headz site as Nikki has loads of great images and nearly all of them are freebies!
As you will see I got rather carried away!
This one uses papers from a Stuff to Scrap bloghop called 'Great Outdoors' and follows sketch 42 from Sketch and Stash- their challenge is to use any of their past sketches. The star embellishments are cut with my new Crealies die that came yesterday.
This one uses papers from the same bloghop but has a lighter, fresher look. It also follows sketch 42 from Sketch and Stash.
This one uses papers from another Stuff to Scrap bloghop called 'French tulips'. I made a matching gift tag for this one using my large scalloped tag Sizzix originals die. It also follows sketch 42 from Sketch and Stash.
The final card in my set uses papers from yet another Stuff to Scrap bloghop called 'To the Zoo'. This time I have followed the sketch at Papertake Weekly. I have also made a tag to match this card.

So, which one do you like best?

I would also like to enter some or all these cards in the following challenges:
