A Turtle Birthday

     Another fun and silly image from Sasayaki Glitter for their monthly progressive challenge.   Fortunately, by using it I've added one more birthday card to my stash and that's great because I have a whole series of masculine, family, birthdays coming up over the summer months.

     I used ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it and the frame with dies from Gina Marie.  Sad note - after almost 8 years of faithful (and strenuous) service, my old Cuttlebug machine had to be replaced.  It worked so well for so long, I replaced it with new Cuttlebug and I'm happy I did.  :-D 

     I printed and hand cut the sentiment, matted it, hand cut again, and added it across the image piece.   I tied a little bow, using green satin ribbon, then left it CAS after that.  It IS a masculine card, after all.  :-D

  1. I had to replace my Cuttlebug a couple of years ago and immediately got another one. It was a sad day when the first one died though so I know what you're talking about.
    I dearly LOVE your card! The balloons are so pretty. It's like you can see through them! Precious image and a great card Connie.

  2. This is gorgeous Connie, love the sweet image. Loving the layout and sweet bow.
