Turtle Love

I made this valentine card using Special Delivery from Karen's Doodles. I colored the image using crayola colored pencils for the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers (use pencils). I colored the heart box and ribbon that Herbert is carrying using the color red for the color with red challenge at Make It Colorful. The sketch that I used is from The Sweet Stop. The spin on the sketch is to also use dry embossing. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) to create the dry embossing. I used red and white for the challenges at Annabelle Stamps (red & white), Oh Alice (mostly white & mostly red) and The Shabby Tea Room (white & bright). The base of my card is the white embossed cardstock backed in red cardstock. I backed the image in red, then in white and then again in red. For the challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings (hearts) I punched a strip of red cardstock using a lace heart border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts and placed it behind the bottom of the image. I also added a piece of white ribbon to the top of the strip of red cardstock. I then took three of the hearts from punching out the border and added them to the bottom right corner of the card. I punched a heart out of white using a scalloped heart punch from Fiskars. I backed the heart in red and added a red heart button to the center of it for the challenges at The Crazy Challenge (buttons) and Craft Your Passion (button up). I used the word Love for my sentiment for the challenges at Secret Crafter (with love), Paper Playtime (use the word love), Beary Sweet Challenges (friendship/love) and Creatalicious (ribbons & love). I am also entering this card into the anything goes challenges at Stamp Something, Stamp Scrap & Doodle and Pile It On.
