Who doesn't like a cute little turtle?

I created a turtle shape card using my Cricut, Gypsy and Life's a Beach cartridge.  I welded together 2 turtles after flipping one to create the card.  I thought he turned out pretty cute.  What do you think?

His shell was cut from a scrap of paper from the FruitCake line by Basic Grey.  I used my white Souffle pen for some highlights and a black pen for stitching on the shell.  Looking back, I think that the only thing I would have done differently is not cut the eyes and used some googly eyes instead.  Next time...

I am entering this in the following challenges:

My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #9 - Shape Card
Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Life's a Beach

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project!

Such a cool shaped card, my nephew had a turtle once, your card reminds me of Delay who now lives at the zoo because he is so darn big! Thanks for joining in the fun at My Craft Spot.
