Beach Turtles!!

I got two challenges into this card. With this beautiful weather we are having I have limited time indoors. I used the wonderful sketch from Mumur for Friday Sketchers. I just rotated it to give me the longer thinner panel for my image. The theme over at Cute Card Thursday this week is Birthdays.
The prize at CCT is a b-day kit from my good friend Korin at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
For my card I have pulled out my Gretel paper from Cosmo Cricket. I wanted more earthy colors. The Enjoy sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the other is from Studio G. I also stamped some clouds with distress ink. I punched a flower out and stamped the mesh from Weathered backgrounds (CTMH) over it then went over some lines with my glitter pen. I have also used paper ribbon from K & Co. I colored the image in with distress inks and twinkling h2o's!! .I went over the seashells, toenails and water foam with my white gel pen. I thought it needed something else so I put some faux stitching on the side!! (Will have to stick with that as the actually sewing machine intimidates me!!)

Well thanks for stopping by and have a great Week-end!!
