Sweet Turtle

My bil in Texas celebrated his birthday last Friday but I just got around to mailing his card the same day! He is one of the people who looks forward to getting a card from me so even though it would be late I knew I had to send him one.



I love this cute turtle from Kim Hughes at Cornish Heritage Farms. I thought I could get away with out having to add bows or flowers since he's sporting that huge sucker! I wanted to keep is plain and simple for a guy...and the soft blue is borderline! I don't usually stamp the sentiment directly on the card like that but I embossed it with clear detail ep to make it stand out a bit. The cardstock and ribbon are from Papertrey Ink, Aqua Mist and Spring Moss. The sucker is covered with Diamond Glaze and it and his hat and pompom are popped up for a bit of dimension. Just easy and simple...seems to be the only thing I have time for these days!
