Turtley Awesome Birthday!

One of my friends has been an active member of the Sea Turtle Rescue along the coast of SC for several years.  I really have enjoyed some of his postings in the past and started sending him 'turtle' birthday cards in honor of this volunteer work.   

Today's card is this year's card for Lee's birthday - It's KLM Digital Designs Chillin' Turtle.  I decided at THIS AGE he must surely need to be slowing down and chilling out!  

To make this card I printed the image on Neenah 110# cardstock and used Copic markers for coloring.   I used Unity Stamps Cloud stencil and chalking ink for the fluffy clouds. For the decorative edges, I used Gina Marie Designs Nesting Labels Six. 

After securing the layers on an A2 sized card base, I added the coordinating aqua ribbon tie to a wooden fish tail Happy Birthday tag and added it to the bottom of the card front. 

Happy Birthday Lee!
