Summer Turtle Card

I really need to get caught up on my challenges!! This card combines a couple of them that I'm behind on... still have one more to go after this but for now, here's what I've got! This is for Julia's (aka Create with Me) DDC to use the free Whimsie Turtle digi image from Melyssa on a card or project - the image can be downloaded from her blog; and for JoAnne's (aka Sleepy in Seattle) DDC to make a Summer-y themed card using Blues, Oranges, Yellows -- or we could go with today's Color Challenge on SCS which is Tempting Turquoise, Apricot Appeal, Creamy Caramel, and either Bashful Blue or Baja Breeze. Whew!! Got all that?? I figured the turtle was pretty Summer-y, I don't know of many Winter turtles. I colored him with Copics and layered him onto the challenge colors along with a matching panel of Daisy D's DP from the Brighten My Day 8x8 pad. The sentiment is from SU's Think Happy Thoughts set and the embellishment is a Creamy Caramel colored decorative button I found amongst my stash of random buttons. I tied an Apricot Appeal bow around it all to finish it off. BTW, all the DDCs are posted here on SCS. We would love for you to join us and share in the fun of these challenges!! Just post your card on your blog - leave me a comment if you do, or use DDC as a keyword when you post to SCS. All the DDC gals will be sure to check out your work!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Lovin' this sweet little turtle, I love that you made him match your beautiful background. You always have such pretty supporting details, it's always a pleasure to look closely at all of the treasures that make each of your cards such a delight.
