Let’s Shell-ebrate

Hello – I have a sweet little birthday card to share today.  This one celebrates a first birthday – and my nephew just turned 1 so you can guess where I’ll be sending this one. ;)

The layout is the latest sketch from Retrosketches (#73). You know I love these challenges:

I used a couple of stamp sets from Paper Smooches; Party Posse for the turtle and sentiment and Tri-balation to create the patterned background. The turtle was colored with Copic markers and embellished with Glossy Accents and Clear Rock Candy Distress glitter.  I die cut a number one from green cardstock using the Digits Dies and used it and some pearls as embellishment on the background.
