I had to play with three of the new dies I just got at Jo-Ann’s Fabric 50% off sale. The turtle dies, the square heart framed die, and the heart were all from my new sets. All are Spellbinder brand. I made the stick pin. The image is from Saturated Canary. I chose to go with greens on this one. Green hair reminds me of my youth…swimming lessons and blonde hair… I added some stickles to her hair and used glossy accents on her eyes, lips, and on the turtle in her hands.
According to Ehow: The turtle has held an esteemed place in culture and spirituality since the earliest days of civilization. Ancient peoples noted the reptile’s methodical pace, it’s propensity for long life (turtles can be centuries old) and its habit of carrying its home on its back. From China to Mesopotamia to the Americas, the turtle has been considered a sacred and magical animal.
With this being said, I think this card with all the greens and the turtles “a magical animal” is perfect for the upcoming St. Patric’s Day but the sentiment makes it perfect for a birthday or any occasion!
