Jenn's Birthday Hop







Good Morning Ladies,






Welcome to beyondscrapin's blog. I'm so grateful that I get to be a part of Jenn's Birthday Blog Hop. What a wonderful way to spend her birthday. To start at the beginning of the hop please on to Jenn's blog she is the start of the hop. http://www.thescrapoholic.blogspot.com/

Jenn asked everyone that is her hop to come up with a project that has a Turtle in it. I made a birthday card using a turtle. The turtle is made with Stampin' Up! punches. The stamp set that I used in the background is Inspired by Nature stamp set.






This is how I made the turtle






1- 13/4" circle punch



1- 1-3/8" circle punch



1- 3/4" circle punch



4- 1/2" circle punch



7- 1/4" circles punch



For the eyes I used googlie eyes.
