This card is for my niece, Ashley who just turned 13. Yup...I'm a little late with it, but that's okay, I'm going to pick her up tomorrow and keep her for the rest of July, so we're planning to throw her a surprise birthday party at the pizza place when we get back on Saturday.
I used my SU! Pallete O' Prints for the green layer, and Apricot Appeal, run thru the CB with birthday folder and then sponged Close to Cocoa ink over raised parts and edges. The scallop is done in Chocolate Chip c.s. and I just used my fiskars cloud scissors to trim edge. If you look really closely you can see that I added Crystal Effects to the dark brown and the pink bumps on the turtle's shell. I almost used today's sketch challenge for this one, but I just really like the effect of this one better. You can see a whole gallery using this sketch HERE.
