Shell of My Life

Today I'd like to share one of the new digital designs from Polka Dot Orchard.   I made this slimline card using Shell of  My Life, by artist Jeanie Hays.

For this one, I enlarged the image to fit my slimline card base, which is 8 1/2" x 3 1/2".  After printing them on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used Copic markers for coloring (referenced below)  and then fussy cut the pair out.

Next, I used a slimline sunrise die with yellow and blue cardstock and then secured it to the base. I matched up the turtles 'noses' to the center and secured them.  I added the sentiment strip to the left corner. Then to complete the card, I  added the tiny heart on the sentiment corner and the red heart in the center.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
