Mother's Day turtle


I'm very late tonight so I'll keep it brief!  I've made this one for an order, for a lady who likes tortoises... so although this is actually a turtle, I've tried to colour her in more tortoise-like colours.  No idea if I've managed it, but she's cute anyway!

The image is Shelly Turtle and Flowers from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, with glamour dust on the bow.  The papers are a mix of Imaginisce and Dovecraft, with Kraft card.  You can't really tell from the pic, but the pink dots on the Imaginisce paper are all fuzzy :o)  Sentiment is a digi one from Cuddly Buddly, flowers cut with an x-cut punch with Papermania button centres.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
