Tuesday Throwdown #62

Happy Tuesday! This week at Tuesday Throwdown, our challenge is non-stamped sentiments. I chose to use a Martha Stewart punch to create my sentiment. Our sponsor is McMahon 5 Designs, and I chose this adorable turtle image. 

Close up of my homemade crab brad, which I made using my iTop.  Then I covered it in glossy accents to make it shiny:

This has to be the most adorable turtle ever! Love the little crab brad. Wish you had told us how you made it. :-) Great sentiment.

Your homemade crab brad is so cool. How did you do it? The touch of seaweed is perfect and that turtle totally makes me smile.

Super cute card, Lauren! That punch worked perfectly for the greeting, and I really like the ocean accents you added, especially that wonderful crab brad!

Like your card. Not seen a Martha Stewart Happy Birthday sentiment punch. I have several MS punches. I like the homemade crab brad.
