"Party Animal" - PPPR DT post

I have a birthday card to share with you today for my Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' design team post.  I need to rebuild my stash of birthday cards as it seems I can never have enough of them.  Anyway, I have been wanting to use some more of the absolutely adorable "Birthday Critters" cutting files.  I chose this adorable turtle and picked colors to go with the My Minds Eye "Hip Hip Hooray" patterned paper I had in my stash.  I created my card base using a shape from the "Layered Labels 1" cutting files set.  

Supplies used ~
stickles and sequins

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Don't forget to stop by the PPPR blog to see the rest of the design team's projects.
