Turtles on a Log

Good Morning Ladies,
The weather has been so beautiful. What a spring time blessing. It is a time to really enjoy nature to the fullest. The trees budding, spring flowers blooming, and the birds returning and singing praises to the earth.
Today I bring you a nature card Turtles on a Log....
 This card was created using a rubber stamp image from Stamping Sensations. This was a two dollar unmounted stamp I picked up at the show in Indy. The image was stamped in archival ink in black on bristol board. It was then cut with a spellbinders die set. I wanted to keep with a more natural look. So it is kind of plain on purpose. But with just the image and mats it did not speak to me. So I added some of the sew easy thread just wrapped around the brown mat and attached in the back. It was suggested to me that some people want cards that are just a little plainer. I take suggestions to heart and my cards are put up for sale at the Co-Op shops in La Porte. So I thank this person for giving me some insight into what people want.
The inside of the card is stamped with a quote from stampscapes. I love their nature quotes. Another person told me they like to buy cards with sentiments inside. They like to buy handmade cards, but need them to have something on the inside. I am also keeping this in mind.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
