Our Craft Lounge DT Challenge #28

Here is the sketch we are asked to follow for this weeks challenge over at Our Craft Lounge.
As i have stated before, I have very limited sets from Our Craft Lounge, but I wanted to make sure I did all the challenges for the month. Here is what I came up with.

The stamp set I used is Hangin Loose with Kona. My card base is Chocolate Kiss and I used scraps of two tropical papers from my stash. I cut the top from a tag and used it for my sentiment and the bottom was used for a background for my little turtle dude. He was colored with Copics, and buttons were used as accents.

For all of my friends along the eastern shores, please be safe as Earl comes knocking. I am far enough inland that I will probably not see anything, but I have been evacuated from the Outer Banks 2 years in a row, this past decade. I know it can be frustrating, but listen to warnings, cause it sounds like they still don't know exactly what this big boy is up to. Be safe.

Wow, what fantastic coloring. I love playing the sketches, but find having to purchase stamps for everyone is hard. I just play where I can so I certianly understand your situation.

You're one step ahead of me - I don't have any OCL stamps! LOL I think Kona is really cute and I love what you've done with this cute character on this card! Great coloring with these festive DP and buttons! I'm keeping an eye on Earl, because you never know when these storms can take an unexpected turn!
