VLV week 1 Turtle

Hi everyone

I hope you had a wonderful July 4th!  I had full intentions of making some cards for the occasion but before I knew it, the holiday was here!  Todays post is a card I made for the Viva La Verve Friday sketch.




 I may have posted similar 'Turtle' cards before... this is one of my favorite get well images because the inside can say 'hope you're back on your feet soon'... plus, he's a happy little guy and seems comfy in his bright shell.



I also colored the flowers with Copics, then added a little glitter and some bling.  I used my new die-namics large scallop edge die.  I just love the big scallops for a change.  I ran the swiss dots embossing folder through my 'bug to add a bit more dimension and to further tie it together with the SU! retired 'ginger blossom' paper which has a dotted swiss background.   The inside reads 'hope you're back on your feet soon'.  It's all about making people smile, right?  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Back soon,  Patty
