Turtle Bday Tag

Created this Birthday Tag using a Sizzix Turtle die. Added a wiggle eye to Turtle. Stamped sentiment on Turtle. Embossed Turtle with Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. Attached a wobble to back of Turtle.  Positioned the Turtle over the top edge of the Tag. Recycled a Panera Bread cardboard cup hugger for beach sand dunes. Used Kraft greens stripe cardstock. Added a gray turtle bead embellishment. Added sea shells. Used string instead of ribbon for more of a beach feel.
