Hey there, I haven't really been in a crafty sort of mood lately.  That and we've been helping our buddy paint his stuff, huh?  His daughter is having a birthday this weekend so I took a break to make her this card.

I used the Slow and Steady set from Our Craft Lounge.  This is one of my favorite birthday stamp sets because the turtle and bugs are too stinking cute!  The layout is from iSpy Sketches...I just found them via my friend's blog.  Thanks, Gale!

Here's the inside...

Copic coloring:

Turtle:  YG95, YG93, YG91, E47, E44, E43  Balloons:  R85, RV02, RV00, Y15, Y13, Y11, BG11, BG10  Inside images:  R85, RV02, RV00, Y15, Y13, Y11, BG11, BG10, R27, R24, R22, C3, C1
