It's Your Birthday, Don't Be Crabby!

Don't be crabby! It's Friday! That means a fun, fabulous new freebie image for you, from Bugaboo Stamps! If you love water themed images and things that remind you of the ocean and summer, then you will  really be crazy about this one! How about this cute crab image, for a freebie this week?! I just fell in love with him when I seen him! Too cute!

If you'd like to see more fun crabby inspiration, head over to Catch The Bug and feast your eyes on all the fabulous examples featuring this cutie crab!

My project uses the sketch at Sunday Sketch And Stamp. I went for a male birthday card. The image is crab, the freebie friday image this week, from Bugaboo Stamps.  He's colored with Promarkers. I used a white opaque pen from Inkenstials, to add polka dots to the sails of the boat. All papers are from my stash.  I love the mix of this fun beach themed paper, with the polka dots. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched and matted with circle punches.  Both the sentiment and image are mounted with foam mounting tape, for dimension. The dew drop pearls are just the right bling for this card and are from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
