Birthday somethings Whimsy Turtle

Hello and happy Sunday!!

I just love happy cards! ( I am sure you noticed that if you are one of my regular blog visitors).
Today's card is for this weeks Stamp Something Challenge and the theme is to create a birthday project.
I decided to use this darling turtle by Whimsy Stamps . It just makes me giggle. It is just too perfect for a funny birthday card. I am trying to decide wether to print "to an old friend" or from an old friend on the inside, maybe "You're how old???" So many possibilities, since turtles grow sooooo old! I'm sure I'll find the perfect quote.
The sketch is an older Monday Mojo sketch, I had so much fun with it, that I wanted to use it again.
I don't know who the maker of the watery designer paper is, the green designer paper is from DCWV short stack. As on many of my cards I used black as an accent color and my currently favorite ribbon (black gingham).
Other embellishments are paper flowers made with SU's flower trio punch, stickles, paper piercing and use of SU's large oval punch. Image was colored with Copic and Prisma markers. The card is a 5.5" square, the card base is Wild Wasabi (retired SU).

Thank you for stopping by today!
