Sending You Sunshine

This is one of my new stamps this is in the Lily at the Beack set from Pink Cat Studios. Isn't she the cutest! I used Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #66 for the layout of the card. Lily is colored with Copic. Her hat and the turtle's head are popped up for some dimension. I stamped the image twice, colored and cut out the turtle, and ran through my Cuttlebug using an embossing template to give the turtle some texture. I used my zig zag stitch on my sewing machine around the edge, and added some ribbon and rhinestone.

Thanks for stopping by,
Melody
