Paper Smooches // Throwback Thursday

Today's Throwback Thursday (a way for me to clean out my 100+ drafts....whew, this is gonna take awhile...) is circa June 2012.
My thoughts on the card from three years ago:

I wanted to make a boy themed card using the Paper Smooches turtle image.

I'm not quite sure if I like it or not, but I decided to share it anyways. ;)

To create the notebook edge without a notebook edge punch, I simply punched holes, and cut slits with a scissors. Ripping the edges up a bit helps add to the look. ;)

Embossed sentiment to make it pop out from the patterned paper...

Thanks for popping in and God bless!
