Friday Sketchers: for you with love

Hello and happy Sunday! Hope everyone has a great day!

My day went pretty good so far, I got some stamping done too!
I decided to do the Friday Sketchers Challenge I really liked the sketch. I used the stamp Whimsy Turtle by Whimsy Stamps. He is too cute and so much fun to color.

Did you know Whimsy Stamps is having a Guest Designer call?? You still have a little bit of time to enter for a change to be the February Guest Designer but only until Monday the26th 11:59PM EST. Check out this post on Denise's Blog for more info.

Since my last card was sort of "vintage" I wanted to use bright colors this time. It turned out pretty "Springy" but I am so ready for spring (it snowed all morning here today!!) . I will add "Happy Spring " to the inside.
Embellishments added are striped ribbon and silver cord, paper flowers with pearl centers and silver brads. Oh, and I also used my sewing machine again. to sew along the edges.

Stamps: Whimsy Turtle (Whimsy stamps), Riveting, Looks like spring (both su)
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirhouette, bashful prints (all SU), DCWV Designer paper, GP110lb white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, wild wasabi
Accessories: copic and prisma markers, flower trio punch, pearl halfs, striped ribbon,silver cord, silver brads, sewing machine, nestabilities, big kick, SU's scallop circle punch, 'CM circle cutting system.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
