Digital Dessert Fridaze Challenge-My Paper Crafting

Happy TGIF everyone!  Since it's Friday, you know what that means, yep it's time for Digital Dessert Fridaze over at My Paper Crafting!  If you haven't checked out Melin's cute digital your missing out!  Click  here to check out her digi's.  The digi I used for my card is called "Birthday Turtle".  He is just the cutest turtle and if you purchase him you get him with a face or without so you can use a cute PK face! How cool is that?! Plus most of Melin's digi's have a colored image and one that you can color yourself.  I did an unusual card today, it is called the Napkin Fold card. Here is a tutorial for it if you want to try one yourself! This is such a fun and cool fold. I colored my cute little birthday turtle with my Spectrum Noir markers, I inked my papers with black walnut distress ink, I used a Tim Holtz rosette die and a CTMH stamp set for my banner, I could have cut it out on my Cricut, but I just fussy cut around it. My sentiments came from My Creative Time and I think that is it. Make sure to go and see what my design team sisters have for you as well, I promise your won't be sorry, they are full of inspiration!! While you are at My Paper Crafting why not take advantage of Melin's free digital?!  Make a project with it and link back to MPC, we so love when you join in with us! Of course you can always use any digi you want, but using one of Melin's puts your name in the drawing twice!! Go over and check out the rules and then come an join in on the fun!!

Here is my card all folded up with the belly ban around it:

Here it is with the belly ban off, see the card starting to pop open?

 And here it is all the way open, you could always put cute sentiments or die cuts, stickers what ever your heart desires on the triangular piece.  I chose to leave my spaces empty and just let the paper do the work. 

 And a close up of my sweet little turtle! Now how cute is he all dressed up with his party hat and balloons?!!

Holy cow! What a fold! Love the cute image inside-I like how you overlapped the colors in the balloons, it makes them look more like real latex ones.
