Snappy Birthday

images (c) Stampin' Up!, 1990-2007

This set was just MADE FOR ME! I swear when I saw it in the Spring Mini it just screamed my name! Okay (taking a deep breath now)... on to the card. I decided that D'Vine Swirl worked for this card, too, and so it was born.

Shrimp, starfish and Mr. Happy Crab himself - all come together to wish a "Snappy Birthday." How fun is that?! Certainly scans don't always show as much dimension as there is on a card like this, because the shrimp, one of the bottom starfish and the starfish in the crab's claw are all popped up, but it's kinda hard to tell.

Anyway, it was another fun card to make that launches me full-on into Summer mode - even though it's not summer yet! But, I'm in my house with the windows open anyway. When I start needing a coat, then I'll close em up. lol

Details about the card:

Stamps: Crab & Company
CS: Basic Black, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Markers: Sahara Sand, Creamy Caramel, Cameo Coral, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl embossing folder

Hope ya like it!
