Herbert's In Love - Turtles in Love

Last week, I was surfing and just fell in love with the image "Herbert's In Love" - I totally love Karen's Doodles, and I don't get to use as many as I would love to use - but when I saw this image, I HAD to get it and make up a card right away.

I colored with my Copics - and had lots of fun making it really bright and fun. I mean turtles in love it had to be bright and fun!

For my card I went for My Minds Eye Home Glitter stack. That glitter green dotted paper was just too perfect - and the bright colors that go with the collection complimented the "love" in the image. I used a EK Success scalloped heart border punch, and then my sentiment is cut out with a Fiskars Heart punch for some over the top added love.

And decorated the inside to match as well. Those heart punches were out of white card stock that I colored with a red Copic then outlined with stickles.

Was just a fun card to make - it made me smile. It is now gone... shipped off for a friend. Hope she likes it too :0)

I think I may need a few more of Karen's Doodles... too cute!
Have a great Thursday - HUGS an
