Snappy Birthday!


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  My card today started to be a birthday card for a little boy, but somehow the colors just didn't jive with an active five-year-old!  SO it will be a card for one of Cassidy's friends...or maybe for her!  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday; the Nautical theme challenge from Global Design Project and happily, it qualifies for Stamp Ink Paper's Punny or Funny challenge:

SIP Challenge 59

So here we go!


Remember this set?  I was going through some of my really old stamps and thought this Crab & Company set would be cute for a child's birthday!  I stamped the crab in Watermelon Wonder and watercolored it loosely with WW and Soft Sky inks.  I stamped a few of the beachy elements and watercolored them as well and added some sweet little sequins and ruched ribbon!


I mounted it on a Soft Sky card base with some By The Shore DSP strips, and added a little banner and a "6" from the Numbers die set!  And here's the inside:
  

This just makes me smile!

Another thing that makes me smile....green pepper moustaches!



Oh that child!  And a couple more birthday cards (told you I got a lot!).  This pretty one is from Bonnie:


And this gorgeous  regal-toned one is from Alison:


Thanks for stopping by today!
