Meljen's Designs = Walking Turtle

Good morning.  I had planned on staying home and getting a few things done around the house and playing in my craft room.  But late yesterday, one of my co-workers called and she is sick and wanted me to work for her today.  So I am going in.  I don't mind, there is always next week.

I have had this little turtle on my desk for a couple of months now.  I decided today to use him.  He is going out to a couple of friends who are walkers.  Just a little encouragement to keep going.

One of my favorite colors for masculine cards is green.  So I thought this would work go with the turtle.

I kept the card simple.   I followed the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy.  I added the ribbon and the gems.  Usually I just add three gems the same size, but I thought I would do them a little different today.

I am going to use the card in the following challenges:
   Seems A Little Sketchy - Sketch
   Artistic Inspiration - Anything Goes
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
   Eureka - Use Some Bling
   Love To Create - Love Some Ribbon
   Paper Makeup Stamps - Favorite Color
   Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
   Cute Card Thursday - Spots and Dots
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

I hope you have a great day.
