Another Cute Card???

This makes two cute cards in a row. Don't worry - it won't last long!
When I find myself at a mental block/lack of mojo, my trick is to either make flowers to stockpile for future projects or to change my style. This week it's change of style until I "get my creep back on", and you don't get much more cute than this little tortoise/turtle. It's from a collection of new valentine images that Rick St Dennis has been drawing.
This one is the Valentine Turtle. I did flip him as I wanted him facing the other way.
I used the sketch # 86 over at Deconstructed Sketches as my guide.

A red card base with mats of black then pink. The green was embossed after inking my folder with red DI. and scraps of red/white heart ribbon added to the corners.
The DP on the black flower die cut mats is from the Authentique "Lovely" collection. and some inverted teardrop gems form the hearts in the corners.
The image was coloured with promarkers.
Then fussy cut out and mounted onto black. Thanks Donna for reminding me what an impact this has. Thanks go also to Kristy Lee for providing the inspiration for mounting the image onto a "wobbler". I had to make my own as I couldn't find a source in the UK. 
Bit difficult to photo now it's made up but the dimension can be seen.

I'd like to enter this into the challenges at
