Birthday Turtle - SSSC156

Hi all! and a Very Happy Wednesday to you! Hope everyone's been having a Super weeks so far! Today I'm back to share my latest Whimsie Doodles Guest Designer Card and thought I'd play along with Karen's Awesome Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #156 while I was at it! 8-)
I printed out my Darling Whimsie Doodles Birthday Turtle image onto Flourishes Classic White and colored  him up with my trusty Copics. I cut him out with the help of my PTI Mat Stack 3 Die and popped him up with foam tape. My Big fluffy clouds were created with my favorite cloud templateTumbled Glass Distress Ink and a small stenciling brush.  All my mats and BG pieces were created with a combination of kraft CS from my stash and various dp's from MME's Lime Twist Fly a Kite collection. To finish it all up I cut out my layered sentiment banner by hand, added a fun MS punched border and some Cute polkadot ribbon from my stash..8-) 

Here's Karen's Awesome Sketch:

Hope you all have a Super day & thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)
Thanks for stopping by!
