Flash those Freebies! Pollycraft challenge

Last week Paula of Tales from Pollycraft asked us all to make a card with one of her freebies - here was mine.  By posting and linking the card she then sent us this ADORABLE freebie called "Tortoise hugs" via email and this week's challenge is "think green!".  I matted and layered this adorable image and paired it with some word art from Create with TLC.  Made this as a Birthday card for a friend who celebrates her birthday the end of this month - so I am also entering it into Pollycraft's Monday Challenge - "Happy Birthday".
Supplies:  Digi image from Tales from Pollycraft, Wordart from 
Create with TLC, Textured cardstock from Papermania, 
Labels 8, CB embossing folder swiss dots, copics and pop dots

I am tossing the idea around in my head of adding glossy accents to both of the turtle shells.... am loving glossy accents at the moment!! LOL!!

Paula - hope you are enjoying your Birthday "week".... oh, did I mention.... the next part of the challenge .... Paula is letting us have a choice of digi (any digi!) from her shop... isn't that so kind.  Paula - thanks for sharing your wonderful talent and thanks for the wonderful freebies.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you are having a good week.
