A Card For My Niece

Hello My Friends,

My great-niece recently came to visit me.  She is now 10 years old and so smart!  She loves turtles and knows some of their latin names.

I made her this card and bookmark.

I wanted to make her a card with sea turtles, so I googled "digital stamp with sea turtles" and this beautiful stamp from one of my favorite artist came up!  It is Aurora Wings  Sea Turtle Kiss.  

Here is my card.

I find I am using this frame die much more than I thought I would.  It is Spellbinders Stitched Rectangles.

I did something on the inside that  I have not done for a long time...I used a rub on sticker!

I love this sentiment - "If you want to know how much I love you count the waves"

I also made her a bookmark, I found this paper with a sea turtle on it.

The sentiment is from Close to my Heart. My consultant is Diana Larson.

I am entering the card/bookmark into the following challenges:
