{Meljen's Designs} Lovin' Turtle

Hi there! Here's my first card of 2012! I'm not a big resolution maker, but I definitely do want to make more cards this year, and I spent yesterday making this one! :)

I made this card following the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #149.

This sweet little turtle is Lovin' Turtle by Meljen's Designs! Cute, huh? :)

I was in the mood to make a Valentine's card, so this is what I came up with. I added lots of sparkle to the hearts on the turtle's shell. The sentiment is from A Year of Sweet Sentiments by Taylored Expressions. I embossed the yellow cardstock with the Seeing Spots embossing folder, and I did lots of stitching! Some ribbon, brads, and liquid pearls finish this card off!

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
