Birthday Card

One of my co-workers has a birthday next week and this is the card I made for her. I think this little turtle is so cute. He was cut from the Create-A-Critter cartridge at 2 1/2". I cut the base layer, layer 2 and layer 3. I didn't want the face layer because I wanted to add his face with a peachy keen stamp.

My card base is white card stock cut and folded to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a lime green mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then my patterned paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I added some faux stitching around the green mat and some doodle dots to the turtle with my white gel pen. I also colored in his eyes and gave him some pink cheeks and freckles. I attached the turtle to my card with an action wobble.

I think she is going to love him! Thanks for visiting.
