Turtle Says Hello... And I did my first SKETCH!! Woot-woot!! -- Stork's Delivery Cricut Cartridge

If you were expecting to see a picture of The-Turtle-Cat in all of her glittered-up glory, I am sorry to disappoint you...  I really do mean that a turtle is saying 'Hello...'  (hee hee)  I actually did not have any help at all from The-Turtle-Cat tonight -- I think she's a little upset with me that I wouldn't get the glitter out...  It's all locked up tight (for now)...
Anyway, I'm super excited to share my card with you today...  I used a sketch, and I was actually able to follow it (I think) for the first time!!  For those of you that don't know, I've always admired those who could look at a sketch and come up with something very creative -- I've always looked at a sketch and have only seen, well, a sketch!

I wanted to make a card for TWO reasons tonight -- 1. It's getting down to the last minute that I can enter something at Cooking With Cricut for their 'Green Scene' Challenge (use 2 shades of green).  2.  Over at OWH Stars & Stamps they have a sketch challenge each week, and I thought I'd like to give it a try!!  Here's the sketch they gave:
So I cut my turtle from the Stork's Delivery Cricut Cartridge (he turned out a little larger than I anticipated, but I thought he was sized just right when I got him on the card!)...  I did a little inking on the edges to make him 'pop' off that background paper -- I didn't want to use dimensionals because my plan is to send him for OWH (you can find out more about OWH by clicking HERE), so I think the inking was a better choice. :)  My cute little 'Hello' stamp is from SU!'s Great Greetings set.  The ribbon was a $1 find (I folded it in half to make it thinner and not as transparent).  I added liners to both sides of the inside of the card so there will be enough room for a hero to write home...
I hope you've enjoyed my turtle card...  Please take a moment to visit Cooking With Cricut and OWH Stars & Stamps to see what everyone else created for these challenges.  Your comments are always appreciated and enjoyed!!
Until next time, may your days be turtle-turtle-turtley!!

Cute card! Love the stripes for the turtle's shell. So glad we could be your first sketch! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

ps - dimensionals are fine to use on OWH cards :) just keep that glitter put away!
