Aloha Turtle

I made this card for this week's challenge over at Less is More and the theme is 'Exotic'.  I racked my brain (didn't take long!) and then because I don't really have any stamps that fitted the theme, I searched online and found this funny dancing turtle digi stamp on Etsy by Amy Stirland whose shop is called Artpixie.
So here's my card....
A dancing turtle Aloha card made for the Less is More Challenge 'Exotic'
I wasn't sure what colours a turtle was meant to be and there are lots of different ones on google so I just picked some greens and put them where I thought they should be - he looks a bit 'Ninja' to me and perhaps he's doing a karate kick rather than a dance?!!
I printed him along with the 'Aloha' sentiment and after colouring decided I needed a bit of an exotic pink/purple element so added the flower.  I also added some Wink of Stella to both the flowers.

I mounted the top layer on foam to a card base in Raspberry Pink by Papermilldirect.
I hope he's exotic enough for the challenge?!!!
