Here's the card I came up with, the turtle's name is Tyson. I used Copics to color him. The card base is a dark teal. I've been hoarding this cardstock because I am not sure that I can get any more of this color. The layer of designer cardstock is from Basic Grey. Recently I purchased a set of Cuttlebug corner die cuts. This is the first time I've used them. I cut them using the reverse side of this piece of designer cardstock. I added some pearl stickers at the top right corner and bottom left corner. Here's a closeup of the die cut flourish. I've seen these used on cards when I've been surfing SCS or card blogs.

Another of the die cuts from the Cuttlebug set. I flipped sides to cut these out. Since my card base is a dark color, I wanted to put a layer inside the card so something could be written inside and some sort of embellishment so it wasn't plain.
