Belated Birthday Wishes

tGIF!!!!  A few weeks ago it was Kathy @ Lucky Stamper's birthday!  I swore I wrote down her birthday on my calendar LAST year.......but apparently I didn't!   So, I had to create a belated birthday card.  A turtle always means 'belated' to me.........so I inked up this DeNami birthday turtle for Kathy!
I actually inked up the turtle a few times and popped him up a few times making a 3d effect.  I used a few Nestabilities on top of the Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder.  I used my Distress Inks to darken the edges too.

Here's a close up of the turtle layers:
So, although belated.......I hope this card  gave her a little smile!


Thanks for your visit!

He is such a cute turtle and the distress ink looks lovely. It will touch Cathy for sure... all those nesties look swell.

I know she loved getting this - late or not! So cute and I really like the way you did the ribbon. Great "popping" on that turtle too.
A FUN and cute card!

She most definitely loved (loves), the 3D is amazing and I am in awe of your patience to cut this cutie out. Thank you.
