A Week of Retiring Stamps - Day 6 - Goodbye to Nature's Nest

My card for today uses a stamp from Nature's Nest, which is a set with beautifully drawn images of things found in nature. I love this little turtle, isn't he adorable!

I stamped the turtle image on Very Vanilla in Black Stazon,  then stamped it again on Always Artichoke. I cut the shell part of the image out of the Artichoke. I colored the turtle's head and legs with a Sahara Sand marker, and attached the shell onto the image.  The greeting is from Sincere Salutations. I spritzed the image panel with a Chocolate Chip marker and the color spritzer tool.  For the panel underneath, I ran it halfway through my Crimper, punched a hole in it and added a bit of twill tape. then I sponged the entire thing with Chocolate Chip ink. I punched out a Scalloped Dotted Ribbon Border and cut it in half length-wise and attached it to the bottom of the Artichoke panel.  Then I attembled it all on a Chocolate Chip card base.
