Summer shell-o Turtle Card

Please click here to enter Cuttin' & Stampin' Ch 14-20 Memorial Day. Please click here to see my Patriotic Card.

Created this Summer card using a beach theme. Used a Spellbinder Turtle die. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink while keeping the Spellbinder die in place. Stamped K Adrew Designs pun sentiment & used a Stampin' Up die to cut out the sentiment tag. Added a pop of green color with metal brads next to the sentiment tag. I may have mistakedly entered the card prior to the metal being added with a before metal photo. Have added the photo w/ metal brads added.
