Whimsy DT: Crafty Angel Turtle

Hi everyone!

Today I'd like to share with you a Whimsy DT card I've just finished following Caz's scrummmy sketch over at Crafty Angels (but turned it 90 degrees to the left). I've used this adorable image called "Whimsy Turtle" - isn't his expression so cute!

Although I knew I wanted to use my Basic Grey Marrakech 6x6 paper pad, I spent ages choosing exactly which papers to use, LOL!  I also spent ages tying the fiddly twine through the small buttons that I added to the centre of my flowers:

Finally, I decided to stamp one of the wonderful Whimsy Circle Postmark stamps straight onto the DP using my Jumbo Java Versamagic Dew Drop:

I'm really pleased with how this card came out, as I love the rich colours of the Marrakech pad.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Crafty Angels ... Week 11 Caz's sketch : I've followed Caz's sketch which worked perfectly for this image - thanks hun!

2. Allsorts Challenge Blog ... Week 29 Buttons : I've added buttons to the middle of my flowers.

Thanks for popping by and for any comments you may have!

Hugs, Sem x
