Snail Mail

Okay, here's another darling wooden shape card.  Guess what, you're probably going to be seeing a lot of these LOL!  Card base is Calypso Coral, layer is So Saffron.  The color coach said to use Daffodil Delight, but that just seemed too bright.  The DP is some from Imaginisce that I have been hoarding.  I just love mushrooms--they are so cute and also delicious!

I punched through the DP/So Saffron layer and placed my snail, which I embellished with a button tied with yellow hemp.  The shell is not detailed and needed something--a stamped or punched flower would be cute too.

The sentiment is from PTI's Pond Life Sentiments and is one I love to use with turtles and snails for belated birthday cards.  It says "Happy Belated Birthday" on the inside, from the same set.  Little flower punch is from SU.  

And FYI, I just got a big haul from SU, which I'll be playing with today, including two new butterfly punches and a butterfly set to match, so expect to be smothered in butterflies!
