Turtle Happy Birthday Card

Last night my hubby wasn't feeling very good. So while he took a nap, I played in my craft room. It was the only logical choice, because let's face it, cleaning wasn't an option on a Saturday night. To start I found a couple of challenges that I wanted to participate in and used them as the starting point for my card. Here are the inspirational challenges for this Turtle Happy Birthday Card:
  1. The Sweet Stop: Sketch/Birthday Twist
  2. My Time to Craft: Stitching
  3. Send A Smile 4 Kids: Birthday Fun 4 Kids
  4. Catch The Bug: Bingo (Pastels, Bugaboo image, Embossing)

I flipped the sketch upside down to place the Happy Birthday sentiment so it looks like it's coming out of the turtle's kazoo. I coloured my Turtle Birthday image by Bugaboo with Copic markers and added a little Stickles for sparkle. There is quite a lot of stitching on this card and I added some purple doodle twine because I LOVE twine. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!!
