'Turtley Awesome' Card Exchange

Close up of the tag I made

The project that I have to share with you is part 1 of 2 posts for a Card & Gift Exchange that I participated in with fellow FCCB Design Team members.  We were given 2 names, one member would receive a handmade card & the second member would recieve a homemade gift, which I will be posting the homemade gift later.  I have to say that I had so much fun making this card for my FCCB DT buddy!  I have only used this turtle in a baby book so I was really excited to use him on the card with the sentiment and turtle paper.  I have to say that I was like a little kid going to my mailbox and was all excited to see the envelope & box when mine were delivered  to me!!  Just hope that mine made the receiptants day as well when they received mine. :) 
Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
