I made this card for Chrissy's belli challenge #50 this week her challenge was to use stamps that have gone unused or neglected. Well I definitely found one this stamp was one of my first stamps ever I was probably only 12 yr. old when my mom bought it for me it's an old ctmh stamp back when they were called dots the copy right on the stamp said 1989 so yeah it's old and has gone unused for just about as long too. I colored my image in with my copics and then to my amazement I found some perfect pearls that I've had for about 5 yr and forgot about so I used the green on the turtle and he shimmers, oh so cute. My striped paper has been altered a bit, it originally was just pink and green so I used my ctmh crystal blue marker and ruler and made my blue stripes I thought it turned out so cute and matches great. I used two types of ribbon and did a little paper piercing along the bottom. I found a new site called clean and simple that's were I found this sketch you should check it out. Well thanks for visiting hope you have a great day.
