Slow and steady

Ever since I first laid eyes on this cute turtle I envisioned him paper pieced so that's what I did with him tonight!! although I think I turned him into a her..LOL!
I used a fun sketch from Card Patterns, Sketch 50. I couldn't get the strip across the middle to work for me so I just left it off.




I use to take the time to decorate the insides of cards and lately I've gotten lazy. Sparkle mentioned that is how she uses some of her scraps up is by decorating the inside so I thought I would start trying to do that again. Thanks Sparkle!
