Turtle Lurv–SC challenge

Phew, I didn’t think I was going to get this card for the Saturated Canary challenge finished in time, it’s been a minger of a week what with my hubby taking poorly and our little Ava who has been really poorly for weeks now.  Still, colouring in one of Krista’s AMAZING Saturated Canary digis puts me in my happy place so I was determined to get this done.

This week’s challenge is good vs. evil.  Well I figure I have more than enough bad (evil) in my life so seeing as I was in my happy world I went with the GOOD (soft, pretty and pastel).

and Me!

And for my card today I have used one of the adorable new stamps by Elisabeth Bell.  This one is called Spring Pick.  I have also used one of the new Lovely Spring Sliders sentiments and also the accompanying  Slider 2 Die.

I loved making this card so much I totally went OTT with it (as you do lol)

I have used distress reinkers to colour the image

The paper is from the Fancy Pants Time for Spring paper pad, isn’t it gorgeous!  The Ruffle Edge Sheer Ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, as is the gorgeous 15mm Pearl & Diamante embellishment that I have popped in the centre of the bow.  Oh and the beaded berries that I popped in the flower arrangement is also from The Ribbon Girl

The flowers are, as always from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used Cottage rose (30mm and 20mm), 15mm roses, 10mm roses and rose leaves.
