Birthday Turtle

Good evening everyone!
Hope your weekend was well.  We took a little adventure last night and visited the Snow Village.  It was pretty awesome to see a hotel completely made of snow and ice!

Today was filled with crafting for me, which was nice...though lately my creative side hasn't been shining through very well.  It's been a bit frustrating...I don't like the feeling of being stuck with my creativity.  But I think today's cards turned out pretty good.
I've been eyeing this sweet little turtle from Whimsie Doodles in my birthday folder for quite awhile.  He's so cute and I really wanted to put him on a card, but couldn't seem to get it to work.  Until I saw this weeks Deconstructing Sketch!  It was perfect!

I matched up some aqua paper with the star paper that I love, and some red to add a bit of brightness.
The little stars in the corner are just a simple punch that I added some small gems to.

It turned out so cute, I'm really happy with it and hope that this will help break this non-creative streak.
