Clearly Inspired Patchpal Turtle



Good afternoon ladies, hows it goin? Pretty good here! So I didn't make it back as quickly as I had hoped but at least it wasn't a whole month right? This is another card for this weeks Clearly Inspired Challenge over at the Clearly I Stamp blog. The theme is THINK GREEN. I think mine is not quite green enough but I was a little unclear. So you are to use shades of green making sure that green stands out on your card. Link it up there for a chance to win the drawing, you don't have to use CDS but it would be really cool if you did, if you have some, :) This one I made with my new Patchpal Turtle. It is not a card, it's in one of those unfinished pressed wood frames that you get at Hobby Lobby, really cheap. My girls are always wanting my cards so this time I decided it would be cute in their room so that's why the frame. I might do more like this, it really was fun. Oh, I almost forgot, check out that paper, the solid green textured piece under thew ribbon, isn't it the coolest ever?!!!!? I just got it at Hobby Lobby this past week, several varieties actually, it looks and feels just like leather! SOOOO COOL! If you saw it in person I bet you would be drooling just like I was. That's also why it's not sewn, I didn't try but it feels like it would get stuck and not feed through the machine. If you came here from Lori's blog you might notice I added the ribbon and flower, I just felt like it needed something but when I finished at 3 in the morning I was to tired to come up with the right thing, so today after an hour of trying 20 possible ribbon, flower, button combinations I settled on this one. Do you ever do that and step back and think, ahhh, that's it, perfect, it's so obvious why didn't I think of that an hour ago, was there any other choice really? I did with this one, I was really happy with it, I'm not always but this time I'm thinking yeah, it worked out, yay! I'll see you guys later, have a great, super fantabulous weekend!

Shawne,

Another "cutie"..love what you do with your designs.

Love the Hobby Lobby paper, now does the green paper have the shiny "raised" stones already on it, or is that paper embossed in a folder? Do you also have Michael's in your town?

Love to "frame" my favorite cards myself, as it's hard just to file them in photo boxes sometimes!

I love how you've coloured this little cutie. You are the queen of colour my dear. The papers are so pretty and varied. And the green paper is so unique. I've never seen this. It perfectly matches the turtle environment. Love it.

Cute turtle, LOVE the way you coloured it. You picked the perfect shades and the colours just call out to me. Although I love the textured paper, the image and colouring are my favourite part of the card.
