I made this for a friend's daughter, who is turning 15 on Friday. The inside says: Happy Birthday Hope it's Swimtastic! I really like this card, the colors, the stamp (I've been wanting this stamp FOREVER!), the dp. It only got one comment on splitcoast. Isn't it funny how things go. Many times my cards I think are great barely get a look and those I'm not that impressed with get lots of comments (well, lots for me, anyway).

The colors I used on this are soft sky (my last piece, wishing I had gotten some more now), wild wasabi, pumpkin pie and certainly celery. The dp is basic grey phoebe. The green ribbon is from walmart and the pumpkin pie ribbon is from SU. I inked all the edges with coordinating colors except the soft sky, which I don't have. I used cool carribean and then just a little bit of blue bayou, which I also used to ink the edges of the dp. I used my nesties for the ovals and circles and my cuttlebug for the certainly celery layer. The turtle was lovingly colored with copics :)

This is adorable! I love turtles, I find myself collecting turtle stamps, LOL, though I have yet to use one. She is sure to be thrilled with this card.
