Dynamic Duos #15 and Mojo Monday 254 - Stampin' Up! Longfellows!!

Hello Stampin' friends

This week's challenge over at Dynamic Duos is Certainly Celery with Pretty in Pink.....now, this challenge has shown me that I'm not great with subtles....in fact.... I had to order in a mixed pack of Stampin' Up! subtles just to do the challenge....and even then I don't own any Pretty in Pink ink!!!! ..... Shocking really!! ;)

I decided to team the challenge with the
Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #254 ....

....and here's my card.....

...and a close up....

I am late sending out a couple of birthday cards, so I used 'Long Fellows' again....I know it's retired but it is perfect for belated cards.....and I added some glitter to his back to add some bling..... he's a disco turtle.... :)

Materials used:
Stamps - Long Fellows (retired)
Ink - Certainly Celery, Stazon
Cardstock - Watercolour Paper, Pretty in Pink CS, Very Vanilla CS, Certainly Celery from the Subtles Designer Series Paper stack.
Accessories - misc ribbon, Paper Daisy, SU Pearl, Champagne Stampin' Glitter from SU Fine Galaxy
