Good Afternoon
Hope you're all well and having a lovely day.
My friend Christine has a Birthday today and has a pet tortoise so I decided to make her a simple little tortoise card!
I decided to call this little tortoise Tilly and she was cut from Cricut cart Walk In My Garden (which my wonderful friend Lillie Rak'd to me last year!} @2 1/2" on blackout and shift. I used a 6x6" white card as the base and the pink card is Bazzill Romance and is a gorgeous shade of pink (just ordered some more!)I printed the stripes and spots for top and bottom of the card from my Pink Petticoat CD's as well as the black and white polka dot for the shell which was printed on to white card. The scallop cut one in pink and one in black is from Plantin School cartidge at 1" and layered. The Happy birthday is computer generated font is Girls are Weird and layered on pink and black with a little polka dot flower. The rest of the flower was used for Tilly's hat and some pink braid added.
Happy Birthday Chris Hope you like the card!
Thanks for looking
Julie xx
