Hi friends! How cute is this little turtle friend from Paper Smooches!?? I have to admit I've been neglecting my PS stamps. They keep coming every month and it's hard to keep up! :) I made this card for my cousin who's turning 26 this week. I decided not to try and tone down the cutesy since this is my style and it's what I do best. I think it'll make him smile, don't you?? I used lots of patterned papers from Imaginisce's B-Day Bash line and kraft cardstock. I discovered a little trick, by the way. I had die-cut the kraft cardstock into a scalloped circle but the kraft got washed out behind the green circle, so I colored the scalloped circle with a dark brown Copic marker and voila! A contrasting color in a flash! :D I'll be using that shortcut again, for sure! The sketch is courtesy of Sweet Sunday:
I'm digging this week's sketch so much I think I'm going to use it again tonight to make another birthday card! :D I hope you like my spunky card, thanks SO much for stopping by!
