(pin)spirational piccie

The piccie this week from (pin)spirational is a lovely Turtle. We have a Turtle sanctuary here in Cyprus down at Lara Beach. It's a great attraction but you have to be aware that you mustn't disturb them. Fascinating creatures!

                                                                     Isn't he/she a stunner!

                                               We have some generous sponsors this week.

prize: 3 sets

prize: 7 digis

prize: info later 

Our generous sponsors gave use some fab digis to play with. I was lucky enough to receive a cute one from Imagine That. It's an adorable image of a really laid back frog riding on a turtle. Party Animals Hoppy BD 2 You. Also a fab background paper.....Beach Papers Bella Beauties.

For the card base I used A4 card from my stash and folded it lengthwise to create a large/tall DL card. The digi was pre coloured so that was a great start as I'm not too keen on colouring in. I used a sizzex die to cut around the image and mounted it on pale green card. I found some matching green DP paper in my stash to cover the card then added a strip of turtle background paper, also from Imagine That, down the centre. I edged the strip with a wavy silver peel off. I found a 'Party' brad in green in my stash and put that on some green card stock. To balance the card I also added three flower brads to the same card stock and put the toppers top and bottom. I finished the image off with three green sequins and outlined the balloon sentiment with a gold bead strip from my stash.

 I hope you find time to visit our sponsors this week and pop over to pinspirational to see what the rest of the team have created. I'm sure you'll be tempted to join in.

 Don't forget to have fun.
