Snappy Birthday

 After a stressful week dealing with family stuff it was nice to do something crafty this afternoon. My head is all over the place and this certainly influenced my card!

Firstly I was inspired by the unusual challenge at Less Is More

So I really sat and (over) thought about this one. I remembered I had a crab die and some glittery crab patterned paper. Being mindful to leave plenty of white space I created this...

Obviously the blue patterned card with glittery crabs represents the sea and the yellow circle represents the sand! After googling 'crab cards' I could see that 'snappy birthday' is the go to greeting for crabs so I used that for my greeting.

And of course coming up to June Birthdays this may be useful for someone whose star sign is Cancer (the crab). Yes - I thought a lot about this one!

What I used:

Linen card base

Crab patterned card - Deco Time

Crab die - Cut and Make

Greeting - created using KG Payphone font

Embellished with 2 googly eyes.

I'm also playing along with the challenges at:

Creative Friday #280 - clean and simple

2 Crafty Critter Crazies - AG with a critter

Pearly Sparkles #62 - clean and simple
