Pink and Purple Tortoises!

This card uses a tortoise stamp from a set I bought a while ago and have hardly used, so thought I should have a play.  The tortoises are coloured using my copics and cut with a spellbinders oval die.  The pink piece behind is a piece of handmade (by me!) paper made a very long time ago and has been sitting in my stash waiting for the day.  These pieces are mounted over a lovely Cheery Lynn fancy oval which is one of my favourite dies.

The background pieces are a gorgeous pink flower paper that I have been saving (lol) for ages as I love it, but today's the day it's got the chop!  The other piece is a pink petticoat polka dot digi paper.  Both of these mounted onto white card and stitched on the sewing machine.  The ribbon is  lovely glittery striped sheer pink gorgeousness.

This lot mounted onto a folded A4 purple pearlescent card.  Not forgetting (almost!) the sentiment from Craftwork Cards which is a white pearlescent flower shape which I have edged with one of the pink copics I used on the tortoises.









It was such fun to make this card, pink and purple tortoises, why not?!  I hope you like it :)
