A Turtally Awesome Day!

Hello!  I know I am late posting today.  And, on top of that, I don't have my usual forgotten stamp Friday card.  But, what I do have is two posts with two different creations for two different challenges. This week, I have been out in my "shack" more in the mornings instead of during the day.  It is just so HOT!  I do have an a/c unit in my shack but when it is over 100 degrees outside, well, I just don't want to even go.  I guess it is affecting my creative juices.  You think?  Anyway, the last two mornings I have been working on another honey pop card because Inky Antics summer challenge using any of the honeypops sets ends tomorrow.  I had one more set that I got at the scrapbook convention that I had not inked up yet.  It is the turtle set and it is sooo cute.  Let me show you how my card came out!  Enjoy!

The Front

The Inside
Close-Up of Turtle

Close-Up of Sentiment
If you need instructions, you can refer to my post here.  I love making these cards.  And I love the challenge of creating the insides. I like to create the pop-up scene, and also, pull some of the papers that I used on the front of the card, to the inside creation.  The green panel with the flowers I decided would work perfect as grass, especially when I used my grass die!  I love the sketch I used on the front too!  It is actually an old mojo sketch from 2009, no. 74.  I need to remember this one, as it is perfect for when you have a square image.  Do you like my turtally awesome card?

Love the card but I love the little birds the best. I guess it's because I am bird-brained at times!
