I knew I wanted the patterned paper from Let's Polka (all links listed below) to be on an angle, so I played around with it on my card base, then adhered it and trimmed it with my scissors.
Then, to break up the white base and the dots, I heat embossed a sentiment (On the Mend) on a plain strip of black cardstock and placed that onto the card, trimming just like the previous time.
After that, I stamped the tag frame (Birthday Tags) and die cut it out (Tag You're It Lawn Cut). I stamped and colored in the turtle, then added some Distress ink and a few flicks of Spray Mist.
Finally, I spritzed the top portion of the card in black mist and adhered the tag to the card along with some wood veneers.
The finished card:
