I embossed the yellow background using a Sizzix Embossing plate. The turtle image is a digital stamp from Pink Petticoat, and I have been playing with it for a few days - just trying different colors to see what I like. I settled on this very bright palette. I used Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 to manipulate and color the image.
These photos are some close-ups of some of the elements on the card. The "Congrats" sentiment is from the Doodletype Cricut cartridge. I cut the scalloped circles using Nestabilities.
Thanks for Looking!
