Slow and Steady

Welcome to a whole week of sneak peeks of all the new Little Darling stamps coming out! The team is previewing every day this week and you can check them all out at Love to Stamp store blog. One of the images being showcased today is Slow and Steady and here's my card.

The Little Darlings Challenge theme this fortnight is all about summer which is perfect for these new images but the rules have changed to you can use any stamp to enter. Also, Angie is giving away 5 Little Darling Stamps of your choice to one lucky commenter this week too!

I made an all occasions card for a boy, kept it simple, and thought this image was perfect to tell a story on it's own. ;D I loved coloring the turtle too - there were so many possibilities but in the end I went for a brown and green look. Hope you enjoy it and come back through the week for a few more sneak peeks. ;D

Did you know? Turtles are reptiles characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. The earliest known turtles date from 215 million years ago, making turtles one of the oldest reptile groups and a more ancient group than lizards, snakes and crocodiles. Of the many species alive today, some are highly endangered. The largest turtles are aquatic.
