The Voice of the Turtle

Do you like goofy? This card was a make-and-take at Karen's in Burton/Davison and the eyeballs make me laugh silly! Inside this card is a phrase to match the outside but it looks better this way as far as a photo goes. The turtle was done in watercolor pencil and I tried to mimic the shading of a real turtle shell. These cards with peekaboo cut outs are so fun to do. You can add 3 D items such as flowers, shells, or eyeballs. Next time I will try this same idea but use a small shaker box set up. I think of Ernie Harwell and his inspiring poetry about the "Voice of the Turtle" on Opening Day of each baseball season. I may be slow but I get where I am going eventually!
