SCS Card Swap - Whipper Snapper Stamps

Scrapinnut620 is hosting a few swaps on Splitcoast Stampers. I signed up for 3 of them. This is the third one. The requirement was to use stamps from Whipper Snapper Stamps. I don't have any of them so ordered 3 stamps from this company.

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.

Inside of card.
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.
I'm pleased with the way the card turned out. Now to get all three swaps packaged and mailed out. I was going to do that today, it may be tomorrow or Monday. All three are due on 6/30.

Thank you, Jalna. I may make him again for our shoebox swap later this month. I need to see if I can get some more of the designer paper first. I really love the colors.
