Girly Turtles

Good Monday Morning...
It was a busy weekend, going down to Calgary Friday night and back again Saturday afternoon. I know people make the round trip all in one day - too much driving at once for me. It was fun though!
So, yesterday I was able to stamp and get some challenges completed. I'm beginning to wonder if I will ever colour this turtle with appropriate colours! I created the card for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS from Saturday. The website was Ginko Papers and I chose this greeting card with the floral turtle on it. I've also used the sketch from over at Our Creative Corner. I've used the flowers instead of the scallops along the bottom.

Creating a "girly" card was the challenge over at Stamp Something this week. I was happy to be able to pull out my old retired "Totally Cool" set and use this girl again. I selected a piece of Sweet Pea Paper and used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut a circle to fit the square. I cut out one of the left-over butterflies and added it to the largest butterfly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die. I ran out
of thin sticky strip so I had to use a wide band to put the orange microbeads onto. The sketch I used for this card comes from Friday Sketchers.

Well, I'd better get off to work - I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Joan! Gorgeous cards and great images too and they're so beautifully coloured. Personally I prefer inappropriately coloured turtles :D, yours is superb! Love your girly girl card too. Chris :)

These are both wonderful cards. The little turtle is too cute.

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I can't wait to see how the paper piecing works out for you.
