Turtle Tag Surprise

Hi there!!! Today I have a cute little project that features Sasayaki Glitter‘s adorable image Birthday Turtle.  I colored the image with my Copics and SNs, then cut it out with a stitched rectangle die from Gina K.  I hummmed and hawwwed about what to do with this cutie, when I came up with the idea of a gift card holder with a twist!

I assembled the envelope part, layering some pieces CS that I embossed with a Happy Birthday folder, then inked with Distress Inks.  After it was assembled, I attached the image.  I die cut a tag with a stitched die, from PoppyStamps, I think,  that was slightly larger than the image, and the perfect size to hold a gift card.  I added a pretty sheer ribbon to the tag, then tucked it in to the holder 🙂  I’m loving this, as it gives a bit of pizzazz to a plain old gift card (although, GCs are my favorite gift, lol).

I’d like to enter this in the following:
