Turtley Awesome

My brother and his wife had a little boy in July and he is the first little boy in my life (only girls around here!) so I am going to be able to have fun creating lots of little boy cards in the coming years.  This is my first!  I know he's only 6 months old, but I still HAD to make him a Valentine's Day card to let him know how special he is! : )
 I had the sunshine in my "bits and pieces" stash and thought it would work perfectly to help create a little scene for this cute turtle.  I stamped him a second time and cut out just his head and neck to pop up with foam tape.
