Dinosaur Nine Square Patchwork Card

This card measure 5ins x 5ins and is made using a white linen effect, hand cut card blank.
What, more dinosaurs?  I can’t believe just how many packets of stickers I have found squirreled away, however I am determined to use every last one, so my apologies if you are bored of my dinosaur cards, but dinosaurs never go out of fashion!  These stickers cost me 60p a pack from a market stall, goodness knows where, and goodness knows how long ago!!!!!
Instead of punching the Bazzill background squares, I cut them on my small X-Cut guillotine because the dinosaurs were a little too big for my 1in punch, this in turn created a sort of patchwork effect.
I am not sure about the overall design though, which is why I only made one, something is missing, but I am not sure what? Perhaps I need to add more detail to the background of each square?

Dinosaurs never go out of fashion - they just become extinct!!(although it sounds as if yours will be around a while yet)!
I don't think anything is missing from the design. The coloured squares all look great with the dinosaurs. Your other 9 square cards have smaller squares allowing more white space to separate them which can make quite a difference. Perhaps a larger card or fewer squares? Just a thought in case you have more to use :)
