Tessie Turtle

Morning all, I hope you all had a good weekend. I spread out my birthday celebrations all weekend so had a great time. I went to a crop all day on Saturday and then Sunday was spent with hubby and my boys at the beach. Crazy as it was so cold!! Good fun though, we had a bag of chips to warm us all up.

This morning I have my latest DT card for Lexis Creations to show you. 
This time the challenge is....

Fancy folds

We are sponsored by The Stamping bazaar

I have to say that this one got me thinking as I fancied trying something new. Finally with a little help from Youtube this is what I came up with.

 I've used a image from Lexis called Tessie Turtle which I coloured in with Promarkers
I've used some gorgeous papers that I was very lucky to win on Trimcraft. They are from a first edditions paper pack called Spring drop.
I've used some SU punches for the flowers and a MS punch for the butterflies. The birthday sentiment is  made using a SU stamp and punches and the other little sentiment is using a stamp (I can't remember where it's from) which was cut out using nesties. I've also added a few pearl gems.
I'd like to enter it into challenge at
