PTI Color Contest: Belated Birthday

Here's my second card for the fabulous PTI Anniversary color challenge contest! This time I used Heather Nichols' colors - Kraft (of course!), Spring Rain, Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado.

This one's very CAS. I pulled out Pond Life, which has not gotten enough love, and stamped the cutie pie turtle in green and brown. The Spring Rain panel got run through the Woodgrain impression plate and sponged with walnut ink. (I stamped the sentiment poorly so I took Maile Belles advice bia PTI Radio and flipped my cardstock around to cover it up.) Thanks for that! My brain is kinda fried right now and I might not have thought of it on my own. ;) Sad, but true. Loved that radio show. Might listen to it again tomorrow! :) Anywho, the card is Kraft with beautifully rounded corners thanks to the Corner Chomper. I finished it off with some linen thread and buttons that came off one of my husband's Hawaiian shirts. Thanks for looking!
