Serenading Turtle

Hi Everyone, my card today is from a win I had for image winner at QKR I was thrilled to bits as the elephant is fabulous, anyway one of my choices was this turtle and snail, I just could see the turtle singing Happy birthday so I had to have him and colour them straight away. I even added a pale blue around the image as I've seen others do, not sure if it's successful though. They seemed to stand out better without it. He will go to a Great Nephew this month.

I used watercolour card, printed the digital stamp image, coloured with Ranger Distress Inks.  I cut the image out with a die and also the background paper copying the sketch, but placing the cut piece back into the space.

The sentiment is computer generated with an added music staff behind it. fussy cut 3 layers.
Distress inks - I'm sorry I forgot to record what colours I used :(
die - Tonic pin dot circle
paper - Craft Sensations

This is so fun! Loving the colors you've chosen. The personalized greeting is fab! Your Great Nephew will love it!

So fun, Faith! I can see why you had to have this snail with his guitar-picking turtle! Your 17 yo great-nephew will think it's dorky, but he will secretly adore it!! Hugs, Darnell
