Someone to Watch Over Me

Good morning!

Today I wanted to share the card I made using Turtle Lurv from Saturated Canary.  Love this image and was a little disappointed when it was the freebie, but it's ok, cause I knew either way I would have ended up buying her.  Can't resist anything with a cute turtle.  I had fun coloring this one. 


Now this is not my normal style of cards, I'm not so good with flower arrangements, etc, but I truly love how it turned out.  The mix of flowers were from a RAK I received, as well as roses from my collection.  I added the cute pillow heart to the mix for fun.  Here's a close up:


I really had the hardest time finishing this off.  I needed something to go on the right side over the heart doily.  It was just too much space, so I punched a couple tags and hand wrote the sentiment, then added a little friend of my own...
 

"Say hello to my little friend..."  {hahaha}  Sorry I couldn't resist!  I didn't initially come up with the sentiment, but I saw it on a sticker that I had and thought... PERFECT!!  So I hand wrote it and added the three hearts just cause.  {lol}  I thought it was still a bit too white so I added some red butterflies and then I stopped. 

I popped on over to see what the latest challenges were at Flutterby Wednesdays and Saturated Canary and lo and behold my card qualifies for both!! Woo Hoo, so I'm going to add it.  Yay!


Mahalo for stopping by!!  Have a fabulous Saturday!! 

Hugs,
Leanne
