It's Friday and time for the Blogger Challenge. This week we had a Color Challenge: Kiwi, Blue and White. (Love these colors together). Boy was I scrambling to find a piece of scrap Kiwi Kiss so I could make a card. That was one of my all time favorite SU colors and sadly they retired it and didn't bring it back.
For this card I used Anna Wight's - Beautiful Day from Whipper Snapper Designs. I've been dying to ink up that adorable Turtle and this color challenge seemed like the perfect time to do so. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored my happy little turtle with Prisma Colored Pencils blended with Gamsol. I cut him out using Petite Oval Nesties and mounted him on Brilliant Blue Card Stock. I paper pieced the hat band, raised up the bow tie with dimensional tape and added Waterfall Blue stickles to the heart flower.
Card Background: Brilliant Blue, layered with Whisper White, and Kiwi Kiss (embossed with Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder. I layered a piece of DP from Doodlebug Design - Seabreeze Dotted Line. I also added a punched border (MS Optic Dot punch) of Tempting Turquoise. I tied a piece of White Grosgrain Ribbon, Added a Turquoise Prima Flower and punched circles of Kiwi and Tempting Turquoise cs and a Olive Sprinkle (Annabelle Stamps). The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy ink. Image and Sentiment and Kiwi Panel were all raised with Dimensional Tape. I added Brilliant Blue photo corners (EK Success punch) to complete my fun little card.
