Tessie Turtle....

Hi Susan here...

Today is the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations, the theme for the next two weeks is 'Ribbons - but no bows or knots', you will have a treat to see when you call across to Lexi's Creations Challenge Blog, WOW the design team have really given you some fabulous inspiration for this challenge.
The sponsor is Whiff of Joy and they are giving the winner of this challenge a fabulous stamp.

Now onto my card...

My backing papers are from my stash, bits and pieces left over from previous creations. I have kept the edges clean and crisp for this one. My ribbon is from our local market. My flowers are from Hobby Craft, the leaves are handmade using white card and inks.

Oh I love this little guy, he reminds me of the tortoise I had when I was a child, he has been designed by our very own Lexi, and is available from her store Fairy Dust Crafts. The image is called 'Tessie Turtle'.  I have used promarkers to colour the image.

The word art, frame stamp and die are from Tickled Pink Stamps Store. I used promarkers to colour the outer edges of the frame stamp.
