I Get By

Hi everyone! sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday - I overslept and just had enough time to get ready for work and dash out the door! I hate oversleeping and having to rush like that.

Before I get to my card, I want to remind everyone of my Pick and Draw giveaway HERE, and also remind you about Squigglefly's blog challenge going on HERE.

The card I made today is not for Squigglefly's challenge because the patterned paper I picked played a big part in how I colored my image.

I used one of the new images just released this week at Squigglefly from new artist Meytal called Turtle Friends. I colored it with copic markers and tried to get the colors on the turtles close to the colors in the paper.  they match better in real life than comes across in the photo.  In fact, the circles that look white on the turtle are actually bluish green like what is on the paper!

The sentiment was printed out with my computer and I added little rain dots to it.  The side has some rub on stitching that I thought went well with the stitching printed on the designer paper.

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Hi Holly -

This card is so sweet. I love the little turtle, what a cutie. And I hope the rest of your day is not as rushed as your morning was.
